ISWI Newsletter - Vol.6 No.028
08 March 2014

Dear ISWI Participant:

Installing magnetometers in Africa can be an adventure.

To illustrate that point, please find attached the blog report by Dr. Endawoke Yizengaw (Senior Research Scientist, Institute for Scientific Research, Boston College, USA). It is reprinted here with his permission.

His Scientific Mission first went to Conakry, Guinea, then to Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Both places are near the equator. Endawoke is the PI of the AMBER Project, which is a member of the ISWI instrument array family. (Visit and click on "Projects".)

If you have recently installed an ISWI instrument, please send in your report to this newsletter for general circulation.

Faithfully yours,
George Maeda
Editor of ISWI Newsletter
