ISWI Newsletter - Vol.3 No.79
Dear ISWI Participant:
06 September 2011
This summer a new MAGDAS unit was installed at Khovd, Mongolia.
(For details, please refer to ISWI Newsletter Vol. 3, No. 73.)
Recently, a major improvement occurred at this station; see
attached "new fence" pdf. The main purpose of this new fence
is to keep out intruders (cars, people, etc.) and to keep them
away from sensitive instruments (such as SERC's MAGDAS 9
magnetometer, the green dot in the lower photo). These
improvements are costly but are needed to improve the quality
of magnetometer data. Vehicles put spike noise into the
data, for example.
The installation of MAGDAS 9 at Khovd brings the total MAGDAS
station count to 57. All MAGDAS stations are listed in the
other pdf that is attached. The stations are listed in
alphabetical order by 3-letter station code. The code for
Khovd is "HVD", for example, and can be found in this table.
If the CALLISTO group can generate a similar table I will be happy to send it around !
