Data Management

The flux recorders collect data ten times per second (10 Hertz), requiring major data storage, transmission and analytical capabilities. To begin with, the data are packaged into thirty minute sets, with averages and totals determined. Every six hours the data is downloaded from the site to the University of Adelaide, with updates to the data on this website. Researchers can also connect remotely to the on-site data logger at any time.
