Ervin, R.E., 1952. Determination of differences in the magnetic elements between the absolute stations on the north end of Macquarie Island. Record  1952/052. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

The Australian Antarctic Expedition 1911-14 established four absolute magnetic stations, namely Stations A, B, C and D. Two subsequent stations, Stations E and F, came into operation in 1950 and 1952 respectively. Because absolute magnetic observations had been made at different stations is was essential that the differences in the magnetic elements between the various stations be determined so that all data could be reduced to a common point. The observations were carried out during the period 31st March to 6th April 1952, whilst the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions relief operations were in progress.
