Resolution No.7 (1975): Magnetograms for continuous and rapid AE derivation

IAGA, noting with satisfaction that AE-indices have now been prepared for the years 1966 through 1973 by World Data Center A for Solar-Terrestrial Physics, and recognising the need for even more rapid preparation of AE-indices during the International Magnetospheric Study, urges that the flow of magnetograms from contributing stations be even more rapid and hopes that other WDC's will assist in their digitisation to permit the routine derivation of AE-indices both for prompt use during the IMS and for publication in the IAGA, Bulletin 32 series. Furthermore, IAGA urges the establishment of new magnetic observatories to improve the distribution, in both geomagnetic latitude and longitude, of the contributing stations used for AE-indices.
