Resolution No.17 (1973): International project for a satellite magnetic survey

IAGA recognising that a global model of the geomagnetic field can be maintained accurately by periodic surveys that should include low-altitude satellite measurements of the vector components, and noting that the last survey (total field only) ended in 1971, recommends the establishment of an "International Project for a Satellite Magnetic Survey" with a steering committee to solicit support from appropriate National Committees.
