Study of latitude dependence of geomagnetic activity of 8 September 2017 geomagnetic storm over Southern Africa using ground-based data recorded at Hermanus, Hartebeesthoek, Tsumeb and Keetmanshoop magnetic observatories

Project: 
A geomagnetic storm is a major disturbance of Earth's magnetosphere that occurs when there is a very efficient exchange of energy from the solar wind into the near-Earth space environment. Studies have shown that the geomagnetic activity on Earth is not uniform; it shows a latitude dependency. The study of geomagnetic activity over Southern Africa is to be conducted on a selected geomagnetic storm (8 September 2017) using data recorded at 4 magnetic observatories in the region.
