Wood, F.W. & McGregor, P.M., 1952. Magnetic survey of Toolangi Observatory site. Record  1952/011. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

An area surrounding the magnetic observatory at Toolangi was tested for uniformity of the magnetic field. The three elements measured were declination, horizontal intensity, and vertical intensity. The main tests were carried out over the period, 10th December to 21st December, 1951. Further determinations of horizontal and vertical intensity at different heights above two of the stations were made on the 7th and 9th January, 1952. The methods of observation and results of the survey are discussed in this report.
