Kazakhstan experimental complex is a center for an experimental study of space weather. An experimental complex near the city of Almaty, Kazakhstan includes three experimental setups for registration of cosmic ray intensity (neutron monitors) at altitude of 3340, 1750 and 850 m above sea level (the ATHLET collaboration), geomagnetic observatory and setup for registration of solar flux density with frequency of 1 and 3 GHz with 1 second time resolution. High mountain neutron monitor data are included at European Database NMDB (www.nmdb.eu). The results of space environment monitoring in real time are accessible via Internet. This experimental information is used for space weather investigations and different cosmic ray effects.
