Resolution No.8 (1971): Project Geophysical Test Ground in the Antarctic

IAGA endorses the project Geophysical Test Ground in the Antarctic scheduled for 1975 which is intended to:

  1. Determine the locations and minimal number of stations required for analysis of the temporal and spatial distributions of high-latitude geophysical variations;
  2. Investigate the effect of geophysical variations on the state of the lower atmosphere;
  3. Continue the work associating geophysical variations in the polar cap with various parameters of the solar wind and the structure of the interplanetary magnetic field.
