Our observation system can keep time accuracy within 0.1 second.
However it depends on the receiving condition of radio wave at observatory.
Pay attention to use of our data, especially in a study affected by time accuracy.
At that time, please ask us (H. Tachihara, firstname.lastname@example.org or M. Shinohara, email@example.com) the time accuracy of each data before your publications and/or presentations.
Our recording system cannot record quick variation more than about 2nT/3sec (corresponds to 40nT/min).
There is not a problem for use of data in usual variation,
but attention is necessary for use of data at SC.
