    • Abstract

       

      An array of four low latitude induction coil magnetometer stations has been used to study the spatial and temporal characteristics of Pc3 pulsations over a longitudinal range of 17° atL=1·8 to 2·7 in south-east Australia. A preliminary study of individual Pc3 wave packet structure at the azimuthal stations has established the existence of phase jumps between wave packets at low latitudes similar to those observed at synchronous orbit and at higher latitude ground stations. However there did not appear to be any obvious pattern in phase jump occurrences between stations or signal components.
