Resolution No.2 (1991): Support to geomagnetic observatories facing problems

IAGA emphasising the importance of maintaining the global network of magnetic observatories as the primary basis for investigating geomagnetic phenomena and updating geomagnetic reference field information, noting that many key observatories in developing countries have inadequate support and are facing imminent closure, and recognising that organisations in the developed countries are the main users of observatory data world-wide, recommends that those organisations in the developed countries that run magnetic observatory programs should each adopt one or more observatories facing problems and provide the necessary assistance and training to ensure continuing operation at a satisfactory standard, and that government funding agencies should consider this as a routine part of their international obligation to developing countries.
