Abstract:

Sixty maps are presented on computational data pertaining to the geometric properties of the geomagnetic field and a brief related theoretical description to make this material more meaningful. The maps display 1 the values of total field intensity B and McIlwains magnetic shell parameter L for altitudes from zero to two thousand kilometers, 2 the detailed value of total field intensity near the South Atlantic anomaly, 3 the traces in both hemispheres of points with a fixed value of B and L and 4 some other geomagnetic properties. The description inclables of the geomagnetic coefficients used and a description of the codes utilized. The maps have been carefully checked. Because of the magnitude of this task and the wide distribution, notification of any detectable errors which may have been overlooked would be appreciated.
