WHAT IS SPACE WEATHER

Space weather refers to the conditions of the sun space environment. The field of space weather began as a collection of studies on phenomena such as solar activity, the aurora and the magnetic disturbances. The varying conditions of space weather are driven by the solar activity.Solar activities such as coronal mass ejection (CME) and solar flares eject the electrons, ions and atoms into solar wind and effects of disturbances that may affect the Earth. When the disturbance occur, geomagnetic storm happen caused by the solar wind that interact with the Earth magnetic field. Since the geomagnetic field and the ionosphere are linked in a complex ways, a disturbance in the geomagnetic field often causes a disturbance in the ionosphere through fluctuations in electron density. This process can cause strong scintillation effects and large rapid changes in the ionospheric delay. Knowledge of the state of ionosphere plays... more Login

GPS/GNSS CORS Scientific Network


The GPS-derived Total Electron Content (TEC) is produced from ground-based Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) network in Malaysia known as MyGNSSnet. The MyGNSSnet Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS) consist of at least dual-frequencies Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver and operated by both ANGKASA and UTM...more
