Abstract

A first-order survey of eight magnetic stations in the southwest Pacific Ocean was conducted by the Bureau of Mineral Resources during June and July 1989. The purpose was to provide accurate information about the geomagnetic secular variation in the region to improve and extend the Australian Geomagnetic Reference Field, and for inclusion in global models of the field (notably IGRF) to improve their accuracy over the Australian region. The observed value of magnetic elements and preliminary mean hourly values for declination, horizontal intensity, vertical intensity and total intensity at the epoch of occupation are given. Station and reference mark descriptions are included, together with general information about each locality visited.
