Abstract/Summary

In June 2012, the British Geological Survey (BGS) Geomagnetism team installed two high frequency (100 Hz) induction coil magnetometers at the Eskdalemuir Observatory, in the Scottish Borders of the United Kingdom. The induction coils permit us to measure the very rapid changes of the magnetic field in the Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) range in a passband from around 0.1 Hz to 100 Hz. The Eskdalemuir Observatory is one of the longest running geophysical monitoring sites in the UK (in operation since 1904) and is located in a rural valley with a quiet magnetic environment. BGS intend the coils to become part of our long term scientific monitoring of the magnetic field, in this case for ionospheric and agnetospheric research. The data are freely available on request and we are interested in collaboration with other institutes and researchers.
