Summary
Abstract: Measurements of the earth's total magnetic field was conducted on board the HMNZS Endeavour from New Zealand to McMurdo Sound. Measurements were made with a proton magnetometer designed and trialled on this voyage. The magnetic sensing head was towed approximately one ships length astern to remove it from the influence of the ships magnetic field and initially some difficulty was encountered with ...
