Abstract

The Magnetic Data Acquisition System (MAGDAS-9) was successfully installed at Universiti Teknologi MARA Johor, Pasir Gudang Campus, Malaysia (JOH station), under the joint collaboration between International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE), National Space Agency (ANGKASA) and UiTM Johor. This is the first solar-powered magnetometer under the Magnetic Data Acquisition System of Circum-pan Pacific Magnetometer Network (MAGDAS/CPMN). In this paper, construction process, installation process and analysis of first geomagnetic observations at MAGDAS JOH station are presented. In addition, analysis on time derivative of horizontal component of geomagnetic field (dH/dt) to indicate the possibility of Geomagnetically Induced Currents (GIC) occurrences is also presented in this paper. The obtained geomagnetic components: H, D, Z and Total F are approximately similar to World Magnetic Model 2015 (WMM2015) while the diurnal variation from this geomagnetic observation showing a good variation pattern. The analysis of dH/dt has indicated 2 significant events of GIC.
