Short summary
Pc5 pulsations are global magnetohydrodynamic events in the magnetosphere. This article details the analysis of Pc5 pulsation events observed by SuperDARN high-frequency radars within their field of view together with magnetometers. We believe that despite much theoretical knowledge, very few pulsation events observed by multiple radars have been reported in the literature to determine in detail the physical characteristics of Pc5 pulsation events by direct observation.
