    This data set includes the original time series collected with broadband and long-period MT instruments during two field seasons in 2016 and 2017 by a team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh, UK and the Institute for Geophysics, Space Science and Astronomy at Addis Ababa university, Ethiopia. For the magnetotelluric stations, processed transfer functions are included in the edi file format. The time series data is provided both in the original raw data format and an ascii version. We provide information on the locations and the processing and include the necessary instrument response functions and metadata to reproduce our results from the raw data. For the TEM recordings, site coordinates and raw data are included in the original format.

    This data set comprises broadband magnetotelluric (MT) and transient electromagnetic (TEM) data collected during three field seasons in 2008, 2009 and 2010 by a team of researchers from the University of Edinburgh, UK, IMAGIR, Brest, France and the Institute for Geophysics, Space Science and Astronomy at Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia. The MT dataset includes the original time series and processed transfer functions. The time series data are provided in the original raw data format with files to convert them to ascii. Raw and processed TEM data, collected with a Geonics PROTEM system, are included. We provide information on the locations and the processing and include the necessary instrument response functions and metadata to reproduce our results from the raw data.

    Magnetotelluric data for the Halloween 2003 magnetic storm in the vicinity of Uppsala (UPS), Sweden and Eskdalemuir (ESK), Scotland geomagnetic observatories synthesized from geomagnetic observatory data from INTERMAGNET. The data were generated to facilitate comparison of the ground effects of the Halloween 2003 magnetic storm in Sweden and Scotland. The data demonstrate the greater risk of hazardous storm-time electric fields being generated in southern Sweden compared to central Scotland and are further described in the gold open access paper: F. Simpson and K. Bahr, 2020a.
