The report is written in two parts. Part I is a compilation, correlation, and evaluation of the Sovet efforts in geomagnetic research (as known from available literature), and Part II consists of supporting materials in the form of abstracts and summary translations (arranged in alphabetical order by author), and illustrative material in the form of tables showing the different voyages of the Soviet research ships.
