Data Use Policy

These web pages contain magnetometer data from the Magnetometer Array for Cusp and Cleft Studies (MACCS), an array of magnetometers in Arctic Canada run by Boston University and Augsburg College with assistance from the University of Alberta and the Geological Survey of Canada, and supported by the National Science Foundation's Magnetospheric Physics Program. The principal investigators of the MACCS program were Dr. Mark Engebretson engebret@augsburg.edu and Dr. W. J. Hughes hughes@bu.edu. In 2008 all operations moved to Augsburg College. At this time Dr. David Murr murrdl@augsburg.edu, a Ph.D. student of Dr. Hughes, replaced him as Co-Principal Investigator.

Further details of the MACCS array can be found in W. J. Hughes and M. J. Engebretson, MACCS: Magnetometer Array for Cusp and Cleft Studies, in Satellite-Ground Based Coordination Sourcebook, (eds. M. Lockwood, M.N. Wild H. J. Opgenoorth), ESA-SP-1198, pp. 119-130, 1997
