SOK : Maintenance mission (October 2-7, 2022)

The heavy rains that took place last August caused mudflows that damaged the installations, especially the vector magnetometer. In addition, rodents have damaged the technical sheaths and cut the cables of the magnetometer and the temperature sensor. Our engineers intervened on the site of Sop, in Senegal, last October to repair and restart the magnetic observatory.
The data are again transmitted since October 2022 the 6th.
