Resolution No.12 (1967): Magnetic observatory on the mainland of Chile

The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics recognising the value of establishing a permanent geomagnetic observatory on the mainland of Chile: 1) for contributing to the world network of permanent observatories, 2) for providing a base to which Chile's observatory on Easter Island and her surface magnetic survey activities could be referred, recommends that the appropriate authorities give all the support necessary to establish and maintain a permanent geomagnetic observatory at Peldehue, or at such other site on the mainland as is considered suitable.
