On day 108, 2001, the Sub-Auroral Magnetometer Network (SAMNET) and Magnetometers along the Eastern Atlantic Seaboard for Undergraduate Research and Education (MEASURE) magnetometer arrays detected dayside magnetic pulsations at a common frequency of ∼15 mHz at all locations below L = 4. This global pulsation event was associated with alignment of the interplanetary magnetic field with the Sun-Earth axis, a condition known to generate ultralow-frequency (ULF) waves in front of the bow shock. The event occurred during the early recovery phase of a geomagnetic storm. Magnetic field measured by the GOES 8 geostationary satellite on the dayside indicated elevated broadband (7–80 mHz) ULF power in the compressional component without a strong peak at 15 mHz. These observations suggest that the global pulsations originated from a compressional magnetohydrodynamic eigenmode oscillation of the inner magnetosphere stimulated by a broadband external disturbance. The equatorial Alfvén velocity corresponding to the toroidal frequencies that were determined with the cross-phase analysis of SAMNET and MEASURE data showed a gradual decrease of the velocity with L without a clear signature of a plasmapause. The observed properties of the global pulsations are consistent with virtual resonance in the inner magnetosphere.
