Search Coil Magnetometer Array Data on Svalbard


Two-axis search coil magnetometers sample the horizontal components of Earths magnetic field at four sites on Svalbard. Norway at a rate of 10 s/sec. These data record ultra-low-frequency (ULF) oscillations in the Earth's space environment that are generated as a result of interactions and instabilities in the plasmas in the overhead ionosphere and magnetosphere.

Note: Data have been added as of 19 December 2011.
