SQUID magnetometer network records tiny geomagnetic changes

Explore our space science, earth observation & space exploration projects

The Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) magnetometer network project aims to record and evaluate very small geomagnetic signatures using SQUID magnetometers in a magnetically quiet environment.

The SQUID located at SANSA in Hermanus forms part of a future network that could identify lightning and sprite magnetic signatures, Schumann resonances and possible seismic precursors. This project is a collaboration with the University of Stellenbosch, University of Avignon, University of Savoy, and the Low Noise Laboratory (LSBB) in France.
