Castello Tesino magnetic Observatory (TN)


Latitude: 46° 02’ 51’’ N, Longitude: 11° 39’ E - 1175 m a.s.l.

Castello Tesino magnetic observatory has been founded by INGV in 1964. It is located near Trento, in Northern Italy, and because of its distance from the INGV main office it has been designed to operate automatically and to be remote controlled. The observatory consists of three amagnetic stone buildings: one is for absolute measurements, one for automatic systems (computers, instruments and sensors) and the third for other services (UPS, LAN devices, etc.).

Instruments

The variations of the geomagnetic field components H, D and Z are measured by two independent systems, each consisting of a fluxgate vector magnetometer and an Overhouser scalar magnetometer. To guarantee the precise timing of recordings each system is equipped with a GPS providing Universal Time (UT). Data are daily downloaded by fast internet connection.
