ISWI Newsletter - Vol.2 No.56
Dear ISWI Participant:
06 July 2010
I attach the talk that I presented at the "IHY Workshop in Korea" last year September; the title is: "Real time Data Transfer Techniques of the Global MAGDAS Magnetometer Network". I wish to thank my superior, Prof. Yumoto, for giving me the opportunity to attend this IHY workshop to deliver this presentation before the IHY/ISWI community.
The MAGDAS network is highly noteworthy because it is the world's largest real-time magnetometer array, with over 50 units all over
the world sending data continuously to our servers here at SERC on the Hakozaki Campus of Kyushu University.
On page 6 of the attached pdf (total of 17 pages), you can find a table of all the current stations. However, since my talk, Prof. Yumoto has added one more station: Cagayan De Oro (code: CDO), which falls between Davao and Cebu stations. So we now have six stations running in the Philippines [from North to South] : TGG, MUT, LGZ, CEB, CDO, and DAV. Please note that the average inter-station distance is small (just 226 km); the latitudinal distance from TGG to DAV is 1130 km.
The MAGDAS array is very much prepared for the next solar maximum.
Your most humble servant,|
