|Abstract: ||A statistical analysis of low frequency geomagnetic fluctuations at the two Antarctic stations Mario Zucchelli Station (geographic
coordinates: 74.7 S, 164.1 E; corrected geomagnetic coordinates: 80.0 S, 306.8 E) and Dumont D’Urville (geographic coordinates:
66.7 S, 140.0 E; corrected geomagnetic coordinates: 80.4 S, 236.0 E) is shown. The analysis focuses on power spectra, coherence and
phase difference between the stations, which are both located in the polar cap, with a 5-h magnetic local time displacement along a geomagnetic
parallel; in this situation, the phase difference between geomagnetic fluctuations indicates the direction of their azimuthal propagation.
Coherent fluctuations have been found to occur preferably when both stations are on the same side (dawnward or duskward)
with respect to the polar cusp; moreover, around local magnetic midnight, they occur essentially during open magnetospheric conditions.
The phase difference for coherent fluctuations indicates a propagation direction away from local geomagnetic noon and midnight. Also
the analysis of three individual pulsation events, occurring at different times during the day, is shown; they are characterized at the two
stations by simultaneous, coherent fluctuations, whose phase difference finds correspondence with the statistical behaviour.
