The PWING stands for “study of dynamical variation of Particles and Waves in the INner magnetosphere using Ground-based network observations”. This project is a 5-year project (2016-2020) by the Grant-in-Aid for Specially Promoted Research of the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) (16H06286). This project deploys all-sky imagers, induction magnetometers, VLF receivers, and broad-beam riometers at 8 stations at subauroral latitudes around the north-pole to cover longitudinal variation of aurora and electromagnetic disturbances in the inner magnetosphere. Details of the PWING project can be seen at In this presentation, we review recent new results obtained by the PWING project at subauroral latitudes, particularly at Athabasca (ATH), Canada, (55oN, 247oE, magnetic latitude: 61.7N).
