Resolution No.5 (1967): Promotion of magnetic surveys in areas of geophysical importance

The IAGA recognising the recent progress in interpreting observed geomagnetic field anomalies in terms of crustal movement and reversals of the geomagnetic field, and recognising the excellent World Magnetic Survey data gathering facilities in many countries, recommends that the effort of national organisations be directed, when possible, towards magnetic surveys in areas (especially marine areas) of geophysical importance, those areas being identified by geophysicists acquainted with the interpretation of anomalies.
