Short summary
This research intends to characterize the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) by applying the power spectrum analysis approach. The outcomes of the research revealed that the SAA region had a tendency to be persistent during active periods and normal periods. It can be said that it experiences this characteristic because of the Earth’s magnetic field strength. It is very important for spacecraft entering the SAA to take safety precautions in order to minimize the damage.
