International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE) has developed a real time magnetic data acquisition system (the MAGDAS Project) for space environment monitoring around the world. The number of observational sites is increasing every year with the collaboration of MAGDAS hosts in several countries. At this time, the MAGDAS Project has installed 73 real time magnetometers – so it is the largest magnetometer array in the world maintained and operated by one organization. Using this global observational network, we are conducting the following research projects:

(1) Global electromagnetic coupling from polar to equatorial ionosphere

(2) Vertical coupling between atmosphere, ionosphere and magnetosphere

(3) Plasmaspheric diagnosis using Field line resonance

(4) Magnetospheric diagnosis using geomagnetic disturbances

(5) Monitoring of space weather phenomena using indices

(6) Sun-Atmosphere coupling

In this talk, we will introduce some of our interesting results obtained from the aforementioned research projects.
