Abstract. Despite its importance to a range of applied and fundamental studies, and obvious parallels to a robust network of magnetic-field observatories, long-term geoelectric field monitoring is rarely carried out. The installation of a new geoelectric monitoring system at the Boulder Magnetic observatory of the U.S. Geological Survey is summarized. Data from the system are expected, among other things, to be used for testing and validating algorithms for mapping North American geoelectric fields. An example time series of recorded electric and magnetic fields during a modest magnetic storm is presented. Based upon our experience, we additionally present operational aspects of a successful geoelectric field monitoring system.

Short summary
The installation of a new geoelectric monitoring system at the Boulder Magnetic observatory of the U.S. Geological Survey is summarized. Data from the system are expected, among other things, to be used for testing and validating algorithms for mapping North American geoelectric fields. Our experience with the acquisition systems is discussed. An example time series of recorded electric and magnetic fields during a modest magnetic storm is presented.
