IGRF2000: calculates the Earth's magnetic field components
Entry ID: IGRF2000

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: IGRF-2000 model coefficients used- Variety of uses in teaching and research.
- Calculates the magnetic field components with height, latitude, longitude or
date (years 1940 to 2005).
- Also calculates profiles of magnetic field values with changing height,
latitude, longitude or date (years 1940 to 2005).
- Works under windows (NT, 95,98, 2000)- self installing software, with
extensive help. Written by Mark W Hounslow

MAGNETOMETERS Ancillary Description
Use Constraints The user of magnetic-field models and charts must be aware of their
limitations. Since the magnetic field is extremely complicated, in both space
and time, magnetic-field models are, by practical necessity, something of an
approximation of the actual magnetic field. For example, global models of the
field, such as the IGRF, do not account for very ... View entire text
