Resolution No.11 (1991): Federation of institutes for geomagnetic observatories

IAGA recognising the importance of continued long-term monitoring of the geomagnetic field for scientific, industrial and other purposes, noting that many key observatories throughout the world have inadequate support and are under threat of closure, encourages the creation of a federation of those institutes operating magnetic observatories, working closely with IAGA, that will strengthen and coordinate their efforts,

  • by maintaining standards set by IAGA
  • by working towards an improved distribution of observatories
  • by establishing and coordinating by-lateral or multilateral assistance programs among participating institutes
  • by actively pursuing all sources of funding.
