Analysis of geomagnetic variations using ground observatory records




Greater Copenhagen area

Earth's magnetic field is not static, but undergoes changes across a broad range of time scales from minutes to hundreds of years.  The best available time series recording this process come from geomagnetic observatories.

In this project new methods of isolating changes in the main part of the magnetic field, that is essential for navigational applications, will be tested and compared with recent satellite data from ESA's Swarm mission.  In particular, the impact of using only data from dark times (that is less influenced by the ionosphere) and dedicated criteria for polar latitudes will be assessed.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
