In this paper Pc3 pulsations at Great Wall Station of Antarctica are analyzed statistically from August 16 to November 20, 1990.The occurrence frequency, frequency and polarization are studied for Pc3 pulsation events. The mechanisms of excitation and propagation of Pc3 pulsations at Great Wall Station are discussed theoretically.
