Increasing the accessibility of IMS magnetograms


  • C.T. Russell


There has been an improvement in the accessibility of ground-based magnetic records obtained from 1978–1979, during the International Magnetospheric Study (IMS). During this period, many new magnetic stations were established with digital output. These records have been archived at the World Data Center A for Solar Terrestrial Physics, but they are difficult to use because of the way the data are stored.
