MAGnetic Data Acquisition System (MAGDAS) Project (PI: Dr. A. Yoshikawa) is a worldwide ground magnetometer network operated by International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE), Kyushu University ( Currently, 74 magnetometers and 3 FM-CW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) radars have been installed for the purpose of conducting research in space physics and related fields. We also use MAGDAS data for other applications, space weather nowcasting and forecasting report, education/capacity building called "MAGDAS School", and so on. MAGDAS instruments send observational data to ICSWSE in near real-time via the Internet. We provide various kind of information for space weather research and education developed by MAGDAS data from portal site for our data ( One of our products, EE-index is proposed to monitor temporal and long-term variations of the equatorial electrojet by using MAGDAS magnetometers installed equator region. In addition, we provide MAGDAS information via optimized metadata database and analysis software developed by IUGONET (Inter-university Upper Atmosphere Observation NETwork). Of course, we are also promoting to worldwide data sharing, for example, in cooperation with SuperMAG project. In this paper, we will introduce the MAGDAS project and our current data activity.


The authors acknowledge all of MAGDAS hosts for maintain our instrument and collaborative research.
