[1] Request to all persons hosting a MAGDAS magnetometer.

When writing to International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE) on matters of MAGDAS, kindly never use personal email addresses. Please use only this email address: cpmn[at]

This ensures that valuable information goes to the entire MAGDAS group in Japan -- and not just to one or two persons. We have lots of problems when you fail to use the above email address. In addition, when you fail to use the above email address, you might not get a reply. Please use it for all MAGDAS-related correspondences (no exceptions).

A LinkedIn group has been launched. Please check it out and subscribe:

Group Profile

SWI is a program of international cooperation to advance the space weather science by a combination of instrument deployment, analysis and interpretation of space weather data from the deployed instruments in conjunction with space data, and communicate the results to the public and students. ISWI is a follow-up activity to the successful IHY 2007, but focusing exclusively on space weather.

The goal of the ISWI is to develop the scientific insight necessary to understand the science, and to reconstruct and forecast near-Earth space weather. This includes instrumentation, data analysis, modeling, education, training, and public outreach.

Group Manager: Michael Danielides
