Resolution No.2 (1971): Project Magnetic Meridian

IAGA confirms Resolutions 6, 7 and 12 adopted at its 1969 Assembly in Madrid and stresses the great scientific importance of the project Geomagnetic Meridian for simultaneous ground observations along the geomagnetic meridians of 105-155 degrees and 140-150 degrees E and covering latitudes extending from the auroral zone to the equator. This project is planned for the 1973-75 period. IAGA also recognising the need for related satellite observations and strongly supports the launching of the geostationary satellite ATS-F, which will be positioned near-by geomagnetic meridian 100.5 degrees E.
