Resolution No.8 (1973): Rapid flow of magnetograms from AE stations to WDC-A

IAGA notes with satisfaction the recent derivation and publications of AE- indices from eleven stations, AE(11), for 1970 by Word Data Center-A, urges that the rapid flow of magnetograms from these stations continue in order to permit the routine derivation of AE-indices in time for publication in the IAGA Bulletin No. 32-series. IAGA encourages the establishment of new magnetic observatories to improve the AE-index by filling longitudinal gaps in the distribution of the present AE(11)-stations.
