The GCMS is a global network of sensitive magnetic field detectors that monitor fluctuations in the Earth’s geomagnetic fields and resonances in the ionosphere.
System Sensor Site Map
The Global Coherence Monitoring System has planned 12 sensor sites strategically placed around the world.
The blue icons are sensor sites that have been installed and are gathering data.
The red icons are places that we need to install a sensor site.
The first prototype of the Global Coherence Monitoring System was built in 2008, named Maggie. After testing the Sensor Site it was decided that it would be best to put the wires in tubing underground to protect them against weather.
"Maggie" Prototype of GCMS
GCI001 California, USA
GCI002 Hofuf, Saudi Arabia
GCI004 Alberta, Canada
GCI005 Northland, New Zealand
GCI006 Hluhluwe, South Africa
So far, we have 7 of the 12 Global Coherence Monitoring System funded. The next sensor site to be installed is in Colombia.
