Welcome to the Circum-pan Pacific Magnetometer Network Data Archives.

The Circum-pan Pacific Magnetometer Network has been conducted since 1996 by the principal investigator, Prof. K. Yumoto, Kyushu University.

We have made the following rules (1, 2, and 3) for investigators who wish to use our data. Any support from investigators is very important in order to continue CPMN operations around the world. Please kindly follow these rules when you use our data.

  1. Before you make any presentation or publication, please discuss your intentions with Professor K. Yumoto (yumoto@serc.kyushu-u.ac.jp). We can offer 1 sec. and 3 sec. high resolution data for collaborative studies with Kyushu University.

  2. If our data is used as the main topic of a paper, Professor K. Yumoto requires co-authorship. If our data is used only as a minor reference, then acknowledgements and references are sufficient. (Therefore, please first discuss with Professor K. Yumoto.)
