A magnetic storm is a period of rapid magnetic field variation. It can last from hours to days.Magnetic storms have two basic causes:
Why measure the magnetic field at the Earth's surface? Wouldn't satellites be better suited for space-weather studies?
Satellites and ground-based magnetometers are important for making measurements of the Earth’s magnetic field. They are not redundant but are instead complementary.
