RAULIN, J. P. et al. The south America VLF NETwork (SAVNET): Development, installation status, first results. Geofís. Intl [online]. 2009, vol.48, n.3, pp. 253-261. ISSN 0016-7169.
The South America VLF Network, a new observing facility at Very Low Frequencies is presented. It has been recently installed at different locations in Latin America (in Brazil, Peru and Argentina). It consists of a network of seven Very Low Frequency tracking receivers with the main scientific objective of monitoring the solar activity on short (minutes to hours) and long (years) time scales. Other objectives include a better understanding of the spatial structure of the South Atlantic Magnetic Anomaly, the study of atmospheric phenomena and the search for genuine seismic-electromagnetic effects.
