Multicontinental IHY arrays would provide an excellent basis for meso- and global-scale monitoring of magnetospheric-ionospheric disturbances and provide scientific targets for mid- and low-latitudes and opportunities for developing countries to host instruments and participate in the science investigations. Magnetometer observatories can be developed under the IHYIUNBSSI programme based on the achievements of the Canadian Array for Realtime Investigations of Magnetic Activity (CARISMA), which is the Magnetometer element of the Canadian Geospace Monitoring (CGSM) project.

Goals of the Centre Short-term In addition to the primary goal of the Centre, the immediate objectives of the Centre according to Article I1 of its objectives are to: (a) Develop the skills and knowledge of university educators, environmental research scientists, communication engineers and others in the four principal areas of remote sensingIGIS, space and atmospheric science, satellite meteorology and global climate and satellite communications; (b) Assist educators to develop environmental and atmospheric sciences curricula that can be used to inculcate and advance the knowledge of the students in space science and technology; (c) Assist research scientists and project personnel in preparing space-derived information for presentation to the policy and decision makers in charge of national and regional development programmes; (d) Enhance regional and international cooperation in space science and technology programmes; (e) Assist in disseminating to the general public, the value of space science and technology in improving the everyday quality of life; (f) Stimulate the use of satellite communication in the improvement of telecommunications and information networks; and (g) Ensure that African countries are part of the global information society, using leapfrog technologies provided by satellite communication.
