Data   Groundstation Description

Information for Ground Stations/Chains

Magnetic data from chains of ground stations are currently available for 1978 through 1987. They are available originally at one minute resolution in either HDZ or XYZ coordinates. There are a few cases where data are available before 1978, but they are too few to document here. If you think that the time period you require is available, you can always put in a conditional request for it. If we don't have it, we will try to find out where it can be found.

Summary Of Current Ground Data Processing Status


The following is a list of chains and their component ground stations. Included are the Geo-Latitudes and Geo-Longitudes as well as the Dipole Latitudes and Longitudes.
