Abstract

This report describes the results of geomagnetic measurements made at repeat stations in the northern Prince Charles Mountains (PCMs) in January 1992 and at Heard Island in February 1992. The PCM survey covered 7of the 9 stations occupied by Crosthwaite in Jan/Feb 1990. The Heard Island work was a reoccupation of a previous magnetic station and observatory site. Multiple sets of DIF or HDF observations were made at each station and sunshots, pier differences and local F surveys were carried out at most stations for confirmation of the 1990 measurements. Variometer records for the 3-5 day occupation of each station were obtained using two portable fluxgate magnetometers developed by F Chamalaun, Flinders University. One was left installedat the first repeat station, the other was carried and reburied at each repeat station. The area covered by the survey was approximately 160 km by 130 km. Station descriptions based mainly on those provided by Crosthwaite are included to facilitate reoccupation. References to earlier geophysical and surveying occupations are given in Crosthwaite (1992).
