A Report on Geomagnetic Observatories, 1995

Provides the status, contacts, and data from nearly 200 permanent magnetic observatories. Information includes observatories by country (location), station name, IAGA code, and name, address, and telephone for the institute operating the observatory.

Bibliography of Historical Geomagnetic Main Field Survey Reports

In order to determine the extent of historical magnetic data publications at the WDC-A for Solid Earth Geophysics, a digital inventory was started in 1992. This report is a bibliography of the publications held at the WDC-A which may be useful in the retrospective modeling of the main magnetic field. The bibliography is organized by author, title of the work, date and place of publication, and publisher. A short description of each work is also included.

Solar-Geophysical Data Reports

A monthly bulletin issued since 1955 in two parts that provides the scientific community with a variety of solar-terrestrial data. Solar- Geophysical Data is intended to keep researchers informed on a timely schedule of the major events on the sun and of their associated interplanetary, ionospheric, geomagnetic and cosmic ray effects. The report is made available through the cooperation of many observatories, laboratories and agencies whose data are summarized.
