Section 2.3: Geomagnetism

Swarm DISC is a consortium of expert partners supporting the exploitation of the Swarm mission.

TIRO develops high-quality topside TEC (Total Electron Content) and inter-satellite KBR (K-Band Ranging) electron density products derived from multi-LEO satellite observations covering nearly two solar cycles from 2000 until now.

This project is a part of the European Space Agency's (ESA's) Space Situational Awareness (SSA) programme, which includes the Space Weather (SWE) Segment. The objectives of this project are to coestimation of the definition and development activities within the Geomagnetic Conditions Expert Service Centre.

This project is a part of the European Space Agency's (ESA's) Space Situational Awareness (SSA) programme, which includes the Space Weather (SWE) Segment. The objectives of this project are to coestimation of the definition and development activities within the Ionospheric Weather Expert Service Centre.

The project focuses on connecting and understanding long-term changes of the Earth’s magnetic field, paleomagnetosphere, solar variability and their implications on paleoclimate studies in an interdisciplinary manner, in particular considering geomagnetic excursions during the past 100 ka. We study the configuration of the paleomagnetosphere and the solar variability over the past 100 ka, in particular during geomagnetic excursions, and their effects on the shielding against galactic cosmic rays and in situ cosmogenic nuclide production rates.

The aim of this project is to determine if the information about past geomagnetic field variations in 10Be data series from sediments can be separted from other environmental influences in order to be used to improve global reconstructions of the paleomagnetic field.

This project aims at developing a new, data-based model of the last geomagnetic field reversal, the Matuyama-Brunhes reversal about 780 000 years ago.

The novel method to model the global paleomagnetic field developed in a previous project will be extended to accommodate time series of sediment data.

Quantifying the electrodynamic characteristics of equatorial plasma depletions and its effects on navigatinal systems, such as GPS. (Project within SPP1788 - Dynamic Earth)

Characterization of induced tidal signals. Investigation of the influence of space weather in coastal areas, which has been intensified by the ocean effect.

Characterization of the cooling of the Bardarbunga Dykes in Iceland.
