Resolution No.2 (1987): International coordination for palaeomagnetic database

IAGA, recognising the importance of palaeomagnetic data for studies of the tectonic history of the Earth and for understanding the geomagnetic field area and noting the lack of any international co- ordination in preserving and compiling such data, urges support for the compilation of both regional and global databases and for international workshops to coordinate the merging of such databases in order to facilitate use of palaeomagnetic data by research workers.
