Weston observatory resumes operation



Weston Observatory, the geophysical research facility of Boston College, announces that it has resumed operation of its geomagnetic observatory. A three-component fluxgate magnetometer produced by the University of California, Los Angeles, has been installed in the geomagnetic observatory building. The data are sampled at 10-s intervals and averaged over 1-min periods. The microcomputer controlling data acquisition is linked into Boston College's Geoscience Computing Network, an internet node. Data will be submitted to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Geophysical Data Center under the reference code “B.”
