Resolution No.7 (1989): Real-time geomagnetic data for the Dst and AE indices

IAGA, noting the importance of making the Dst and AE magnetic indices available to the scientific community as promptly as possible and recognising that the production of these indices on short time scales can be greatly assisted by transmitting data via satellite links recommends the use of such a system and encourages those magnetic observatories providing data to the World Data Center C2 for Geomagnetism for the calculation of these indices to use real-time data transmission systems such as that planned under the INTERMAGNET project.
