Resolution No.14 (1977): Ground magnetic measurements for MAGSAT project

IAGA, recognising that optimum benefit from the planned geomagnetic survey by the satellite MAGSAT, expected to be launched in September 1979, can result only if accurate ground-based measurements are carried out at observatories and repeat stations, especially in the regions where they are sparse, in order to obtain improved information on the secular change of the geomagnetic field, urges its Member Countries to support such measurements.
