Abstract

Magnetic Data Acquisition System (MAGDAS) is a magnetometer initiated by the International Center for Space Weather Science and Education in Kyushu University, Japan, to study space weather. The latest of real-time Magnetic Data Acquisition System/Circum-pan Pacific Magnetometer Network was successfully installed at the East Coast Environmental Research Institute in Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, Terengganu, Malaysia, by Kyushu University. This is the fifth magnetometer under the MAGDAS network (geographic latitude and longitude: 5.23°, 103.04° and geomagnetic latitude and longitude: − 4.21°, 175.91°). In this study, the results of data plot obtained at Terengganu (TRE) station were shown to have reliable patterns of geomagnetic elements. The amplitude variations for each component were also proximate with other stations and a standard model. This study compared MAGDAS-II data for the H component with solar wind data (input energy, IMF, dynamic pressure and speed).
