Resolution No.6 (1993): Providing resources to magnetic observatories (Division V)

The IAGA, noting the contribution made by magnetic observatories to long-term environmental monitoring, to fundamental research and to ground-based and satellite surveys and experiments, and noting also the extensive commercial and governmental use of geomagnetic models and indices derived from magnetic observatory data, urges relevant organisations, agencies, and member countries, to provide the resources to maintain continuity of synoptic magnetic observations and to adopt modern digital instruments.
