Patagonia Station for Extremely Low Frequency Electromagnetic Field Measurements


Patagonia Station is located in Rio Gallegos in Patagonia (Argentina). It was assembled at the JU Astronomical Observatory. It will be used together with Hylaty Station and Hugo Station, to measure electromagnetic waves of extremely low frequencies (0,03 to 300 Hz).



This construction is a third step towards creating a worldwide network of such stations, which will allow for real-time online measurements everywhere on the planet.



The station is placed underground at the geographic location 51.5S, 69.3W. The installation was supported by the HARMONIA grant No. 2012/04/M/ST10/00565 from National Science Centre in Poland, supporting our collaboration with Argentina partner institution- The National Scientific and Technical Research Council of Argentina.
