[PEM16-11] Variation of equivalent current system representing geomagnetic Sq variation in the period of 1980-2010

*Masahiko Takeda1 (1.Data Analysis Center for Geomagnetism and Space Magnetism, Graduate School of Science, Kyoto University)

Keywords:geomagnetic daily variation,, equivalent current system, secular variation, solar activity

Spherical harmonics analysis was performed for the geomagnetic Sq field from 1980 to 2010 for every universal hour on each day. Solar activity dependence of the total Sq currents was confirmed, and variation in each solar cycle was also reflected in the total current intensity.
More detailed features of the long trend of the Sq field will be discussed in the presentation.
