Geospace Research Center

The purpose of the Geospace Research Center is to coordinate joint research projects and to construct databases in the field of solar-terrestrial science.

STEL carries out routine ground-based observations of various physical and chemical phenomena in the solar-terrestrial environment from its own observatories located at Moshiri, Rikubetsu, Fuji, and Kagoshima. These long-term observations are used in conjunction with similar observations from stations at Kiso and Sugadaira.
