Dennis, S.D., Hitchman, A.P. & McEwin, A.J., 1991. First-order regional magnetic survey of Papua New Guinea, April-May 1989. Record  1991/076. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

During April and May 1989 six magnetic repeat stations in Papua New Guinea were visited to collect data on the rate of change and strength of the magnetic field of the Earth in the region, for use in production of charts and the Australian Geomagnetic Reference Field model for 1990.0. The survey was organised in cooperation with the Port Moresby Geophysical Observatory of the PNG Geological Survey. The survey team consisted of a geophysicist from the observatory and S Dennis from the Geomagnetism Section, BMR Canberra.
