Abstract: The magnetic Z field variation for the period 9-25 Dec. 1996, recorded at the stations Sodankyla (67.37°N, 26.63°E), Tromso (69.67°N, 18.95°E), Abisko (68.30°N, 18.82°E), and Hornsund (77.00°N, 26.63°E) ( are compared with the Geminids (12-15 Dec. 1996) and Ursids (20-23 Dec. 1996) showers as reported by Yrjola ( The correlation studies show that it is difficult to prove conclusively that the magnetic field fluctuations observed at Sodankyla are due to the dust particles in the meteor showers and the associated changes in the ionospheric currents due to them.
