Summary
Abstract: Magnetometer data from the USGS observatories are available in two
forms, 'preliminary' and 'definitive'. Preliminary data are available
in near-real time, but they are unprocessed, they have not been
explicitly adjusted for long-term baseline drift, and they have not
been cleaned of occasional spikes and step offsets. Having said that,
preliminary data are reasonably good representations of field
