ISWI Newsletter - Vol.4 No.86
28 July 2012

Dear ISWI Participant:

ISWI produces results.

Attached is a paper based on the data from ISWI instrumentation running in Egypt -- which has been an active force in IHY and ISWI.

Among this instrumentation is the MAGDAS fluxgate magnetometer at Aswan. The MAGDAS Project in Aswan is a collaboration between Dr. A. M. Mahrous (Helwan University, Egypt) and Prof. K. Yumoto (Kyushu University, Japan). So I attach some photos that I took during the installation of this magnetometer in the desert of southern Egypt. South Valley University is also a member of this collaboration, as the equipment is located on the campus of this university.

Yours truly in the service of ISWI,
