Magnetic Survey : Outline


Magnetic Survey

Geomagnetic surveys are performed to realize the geomagnetic distribution in Antarctica. Surveys performed at control points in ice-free areas were from the 8th JARE (1966) to the 48th JARE (2007); surveys at sea from the 2nd JARE (1967) to the 9th JARE (1967); and aeromagnetic surveys from the 8th JARE (1966) to the 16th JARE (1974).
