Abstract

In the March 1976 issue of EOS we reported on the formation of the A GU Committee on Geomagnetic Reference Fields and on our efforts to influence the decision concerning the 1975 revision of the International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF) by the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA) . Working once again with the Society of Exploration Geophysicists committee on the IGRF, we participated in the 1977 IAGA meeting on the revision of the IGRF. It was fortunate that at the same meeting, views similar to ours were presented by S. P. Srivastava of Canada and R. Whitworth of Australia. The resulting discussion and committee decision on the revision of the IGRF were indeed encouraging.
