Magnetic ObservationsEntry ID: Absolutes
Abstract: Final one minute average values of the absolute geomagnetic field in the north (X), east (Y) and vertical (Z) components in units of nanoTesla (nT).
Magnetic variometer data have been collected at Macquarie Is. since 1952; Mawson since 1955; and Casey since 1988. Data were not digital from Macquarie Is. until late 1984; from Mawson until late 1986. They have been digital from Casey since 1988. Data that are currently available from the GA website are not complete, but improving. The status of data availability is available on the website.
Particular magnetic elements can be chosen to be plotted or tabulated data are available.
