Resolution No.5 (2009): Quasi-definitive magnetic observatory data

IAGA, recognising the importance of prompt baseline-corrected observatory data for the production of geomagnetic indices and geomagnetic models such as the IGRF, noting that several individual users and groups of users, such as the Mission Advisory Group of the upcoming ESA Swarm satellite mission, have expressed their interest in and need for such data, encourages magnetic observatories to produce baseline-corrected quasi-definitive data shortly after their acquisition.
