Pagination or Media Count:
A PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS IS MADE OF DATA FROM THE Vanguard III satellite 1959 ETA. The resulting scalar field measurements are plotted against computed values obtained from three differentANALYSES Finch and Leaton coefficients, Jensen and Whitaker coefficients from U.S.N.H.O. charts, and Jensen and Whitaker coefficients from Russian charts. The topics discussed include The accuracy of spherical harmonic analyses of the earths field, possible magnetic field discontinuities associated with the inner radiation belt, and magnetic storm effects.
