Abstract:

To study the induction effects of time variations in the earths magnetic field, it is common, and desirable, to measure all three components of the field. A semiquantitative investigation of the induction effects of micro-pulsations was carried out using only vertical component observations. This paper is a discussion of the use of a scalar field magnetometer to measure the vertical component exclusively. The field procedure for using these A-meters and the possibility of expanding the system to a three component device are also considered. Author
