Resolution No.1 (2001): International Decade of Geopotential Field

IAGA, recognising the efforts recently made by various national space agencies to acquire high- precision global measurements of the Earth's magnetic field from space to initiate the present International Decade of Geopotential Field Research, welcoming the resulting significant advances in our ability to model and understand the Earth's magnetic field and its time variations, and noting the scientific value of continuing high-resolution geomagnetic measurements over the whole globe during this decade, urges major space agencies to give high-precision mapping of the geomagnetic field in space and time a high scientific priority.
