The role of observatories has been and still is essential in monitoring the variations of the geomagnetic field, both for science and for commercial and governmental uses, as will be briefly discussed later.

Records of observations in the Gulf of Mexico and North Atlantic and North Pacific Ocean areas, ; and the Azores Islands, A magnetic observatory is a specially designed ground-based facility that supports time-series measurement of the Earth’s magnetic field.

Observatory data record a superposition of time-dependent signals related to a fantastic diversity of physical processes in the Earth’s core, mantle, lithosphere, ocean, ionosphere, magnetosphere, and, even, the Sun and solar wind.

A strong motivation in running magnetic observatories is to monitor the evolu-tion of the Earth’s main magnetic field, originating in the fluid outer core. The impor-tance of long-term observations in support of this endeavour is illustrated in Fig.

Since the time of Gauss, the number of geomagnetic observatories has grown to aboutpartly due to international efforts such as the International Polar Year in –, the Second International Polar Year in – and the International Geophysical Year in – Earth Satellite Program: Project State U of Iowa: Cosmic Ray Observation: Earth Satellite Program: Project State U of Iowa: Cosmic Ray Observation: Earth Satellite Program: Project State U of Iowa: Cosmic Ray Observation: Earth Satellite Program: Project State U of Iowa: Cosmic Ray Observation: magnetic storms and the maxima of sunspots (Sidgreaves, – ).

The continuous magnetic observations from to at Stonyhurst may be one of the longest series at the same site. Solar–terrestrial relations were also the main subject of Haynald Observatory, founded in by Jesuits in Kalocsa (Hungary).

The IGY-IGC records of the Alibag Observatory appended to the Observatory's annual volumes for – and (five greatest and severest storms in each year) have been re-examined (India Meterological Department,India Meterological Department, ).

The observations were made at the geophysical observatory of the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics SB RAS (52 N, E, East Siberia) using the 4-channel zenith photometer.

The optical observations were made in the years and For the concerned period, we recorded the optical manifestation of four strong magnetic storms. The results of the winter anomaly observations at the Pansk Ves Observatory on kHz and kHz (A3 method, feq1 and MHz) are studied for the winters of /72 and / The Amundsen–Scott South Pole Station is the United States scientific research station at the South Pole of the is the southernmost point under the jurisdiction (not sovereignty) of the United station is on the high plateau of Antarctica at 2, metres (9, feet) above sea is administered by the Division of Polar Programs of the National Science Foundation.

The Royal Observatory, Greenwich (ROG; known as the Old Royal Observatory from towhen the working Royal Greenwich Observatory, RGO, moved from Greenwich to Herstmonceux) is an observatory situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and because the prime meridian passes through it, it gave its.

The first written record of sunspots was made by Chinese astronomers around B.C. Court astrologers in ancient China and Korea, who believed sunspots foretold important events, kept records off and on of sunspots for hundred of years.

An English monk named John of Worcester made the first drawing of sunspots in December During the s and early s, the Darwin Uranium Group of BMR prepared a number of reports on uranium exploration, mining, and related topics.

Produced in the same format as the BMR Records, many were published in that series, but some contained sensitive information which prevented their release for years. These became known as the Confidential Records, a separate series to the main Records. Decembrought to a close the International years of the Quiet Sun (IQSY ).

The rich harvest of scientific results produced by this intensive study of the vast region between the sun and the earth will be published in a series of about 7 volumes, of which this is the sixth, under the general title of Annals of the series should be completed by The drastic changes that occurred in the distribution of the arctic aurora during the great magnetic storm of Februare described, on the basis of the records of the auroral all-sky cameras in North America, together with one in East Siberia and the one in Japan.

These days, one-minute-average data is a standard observatory product, but one-second-average data production is becoming more common. As an example, the Kakioka Magnetic Observatory in Japan has produced one-second data continuously since —a record of magnetic-field variation over time scales spanning almost nine orders of magnitude.

These nine short videos show the third and fourth lessons in a lesson third-grade magnet unit. In lessons prior to this video record, the students and teacher have observed and discussed the attractive property of magnets with respect to different materials, and have planned an investigation on the relative strength of two kinds of magnets.

In an observatory of this sort, magnetized needles with reflecting mirrors are suspended by quartz fibres. Light beams reflected from the mirrors are imaged on a photographic negative. The most intense magnetic storm since the IGY (–), that of March (Allen et al., ), had a maximum –Dst = nT.

This storm is especially notable because it caused an electricity blackout in Québec, Canada. Monthly totals of aurora observations, for the whole period of Hughes' measurementscompared with total monthly observations made in andat geomagnetic latitudes of 55°N and 60°N.

Tucked in a grove of thorny mesquite trees, on an ancient coral reef on the south side of the Hawaiian island of Oahu, west of Pearl Harbor, a small unmanned observatory quietly records the Earth’s time-varying magnetic field.

The Honolulu Magnetic Observatory is 1 of 14 that the U.S. Geological Survey Geomag­netism Program operates at. NRIAG has very long history of astronomical and Geophysical observation since it was established on the year as a Royal observatory at Bollak, then moved to ABBASIA on the year before it was moved to the current location at Helwan inmaking it the oldest research institute in North Africa and be one of world heritage sites in Science and technology.

This funded the studies and observations which were eventually published in as the General Catalogue of 33, Stars. In order to complete the necessary observations, an observatory was built in San Luis, Argentina to record Southern Hemisphere data.

The instruments were dismantled in Albany and shipped by boat to the site. the international geophysical year, The cosmic ray group at the University of Minnesota also included Professor Edward P. Ney and Phyllis Freier. These two scientists were codiscoverers, along with H.

Bradt and B. Peters of the University of Rochester, of nuclei having atomic number equal to or greater than 2 in the galactic cosmic rays. In the temperate regions the past 50 years have brought the tools of science to a new level—measurement and observing technology, computing capacity, miniaturization, and a host of other advances.

Measurements and techniques are possible now that were only seen in science fiction novels during the International Geophysical Year (IGY) in   For the magnetic field strength of the three jets, using the observation at UT, we found 60 G magnetic field strength in that structure.
