INTERMAGNET produces CD-ROM/DVDs that contain definitive data (final, processed values) from a global network of magnetic observatories. The INTERMAGNET CD-ROM/DVDs are based upon the model developed by the USGS/NGIC.
The data consist of one-minute, hourly, and daily mean values for the vector components (X,Y, Z or D,H, Z), and have a resolution of tenth-nanoteslas or tenth-minutes of arc (Declination). Total Intensity (F) data and K-index values are also included for many stations. Access software and documentation accompany the CD-ROM/DVDs.
The CD-ROM/DVD itself conforms to the ISO 9660 standards, and can be used on any CD-ROM/DVD reader that operates on this standard.
The access software is a menu-driven program that allows the user to display data in both graphics (plots) and text modes.
How to Obtain CD-ROM/DVDs
The INTERMAGNET CD-ROM/DVDs are available at no charge to bona fide scientists for academic purposes only. By requesting one or more INTERMAGNET CD-ROM/DVDs you will be agreeing to abide by the Conditions of Use.
Send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating clearly the CD-ROM/DVDs required, your name, the name of your academic institution, and your mailing address if a physical copy of the CD-ROM/DVDs is required.
