Abstract

The Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics contributes to the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions by operating geomagnetic and seismological observatories at Mawson and Macquarie Island, operating a seismological observatory at Casey, providing an observer for the Mawson observatories, assisting in the operation and calibration of the Antarctic Division geomagnetic monitoring programs at Davis and Casey, and by performing geophysical and geological field work in Antarctica. This report describes the operation of the Mawson geomagnetic and seismological observatories from 23 December 1988 until 2 January 1990. It also describes a brief visit to Davis to perform calibrations on the local geomagnetic instruments in March 1990. It includes an analysis of Mawson geomagnetic data from 1 January 1989 UTC until 31 December 1989 UTC (inclusive).
