Global observation of 24 November 2006 Pc5 pulsations by single mid-latitude underground [SQUID] 2 system

Abstract : On 24 November 2006, simultaneous observations of Pc5 pulsations, electron precipitation and whistler-mode chorus, as well as solar wind and IMF parameters have been analyzed based on data from IMAGE magne-tometers, riometer array and temporal VLF station. This paper focuses on the Pc5 pulsations detected at the same time, in the 1–25 millihertz range, by the [SQUID] 2 system (SQUID magnetometer within a Shielding QUalified for Ionosphere Detection) installed 518 m underground at 43.92 • N, 5.48 • E. As expected, the 3-D-frequency spectrum of these mid-latitude [SQUID] 2 signals exhibits frequency peaks quasi identical to those observed by polar stations of close geomagnetic longitude. The signal/noise ratio allows the observation of the wave polarization and the beatings of the frequencies. As a result, the possibility of studying, at mid-latitude, magnetic Pc5 pulsations linked with an event in the magnetosphere can improve the description of both behaviour and propagation of these waves.
