Kiruna magnetogram

Real time

Follow the geomagnetic development in real time! (NB! Absolute values are shown in the graphs. The data is not yet processed and may contain man-made signals. Real values in processed data (latest processed data 2016-07-31 23:59:59). Solar quiet curves shows the normal or quiet state for the magnetic field when not disturbed by solar storms. The development of quiet curves from 1978 can be seen here: Quiet curves 1978-).

Updates last two years
Updated by Mats Luspa 4 July 2016. Old proton magnetometer is measuring again. New proton magnetomter was too noisy.
Updated by Mats Luspa 4 July 2016. New proton magnetometer is measuring again. Absolute mesurement is done also.
Updated by Mats Luspa 20 June 2016. Old proton magnetometer is measuring again.
Updated by Mats Luspa 16 June 2016. Test of new proton magnetometer again.
Updated by Mats Luspa 10 June 2016. The old proton magnetometer is back measuring again.
Updated by Mats Luspa 8 June 2016. Testing the new proton magnetometer again.
Updated by Mats Luspa 3 June 2016. The noise is not acceptable in the new proton magnetometer therefore old proton magnetometer is installed back again.
Updated by Mats Luspa 3 June 2016. New proton magnetometer back from reparation and reinstalled.
Updated by Mats Luspa 29 March 2016. Problem with the proton magnetometer that was installed 10 December 2015 has lead to that the old proton magnetometer is now reinstalled.
Updated by Mats Luspa 23 February 2016. "Pelardifferens" was measured to -80.5 nT.
Updated by Mats Luspa 25 January 2016. Hardware problems in Kiruna. Contact and cables exchanged for the magnetometer.
Updated by Mats Luspa 22 January 2016. Added graph for 3d plot magnetic field in Kiruna.
Updated by Mats Luspa 7 January 2016. Added graph for data from ACE magnetometer where data is prepared by noaa.gov.
Updated by Mats Luspa 10 December 2015. New proton magnetometer is again connected and makes total field measurements until further notice.
Updated by Mats Luspa 16 October 2015. The old proton magnetometer is again connected and makes total field measurements until further notice.
Updated by Mats Luspa 16 October 2015. Black version of magnetokegrams added: Black magnetokeogram.
Updated by Mats Luspa 12 October 2015. First absolute measurement with data from new proton magnetometer made. The new proton magnetometer now makes total field measurements until further notice.
