Voltages measured on long grounded electrically conducting lines in North American during several magnetic storms, 1891-1940

Presented is a list of voltages (electric potential differences) measured during magnetic storms on grounded long lines in the United States and Canada between 1891 and 1940. The sources for the list are published papers, technical documents, and newspapers. Each entry consists of the maximum voltage measured for each storm on a specified line connecting two ground points, nominally, between A "an

North American electricity power-grid and communication-network anomalies for several magnetic storms

Anomaly lists are presented documenting operational interference to electricity power grids and communication networks in the United States and Canada during magnetic storms. Four of the anomaly lists apply for magnetic storms that occurred in March 1989, August 1972, March 1940, and for various storms 1946-2000; yet another list consists of statistical values summarizing geomagnetically induced c

2012 Geomagnetic Repeat Station Data

This data release consists of Magnetic Repeat Station data collected at three different sites in the central United States. One site is in Fremont, NE, the other two are in Hereford and Del Rio, TX. Repeat Stations are temporary magnetic installations, where the Earth's magnetic field, or geomagnetic field, is measured for several days, with the goal of producing mean values of the vector compon
