MAGNETIC VARIATIONS IN THE REGION OF THE AURORAL ZONE,
DIRECTORATE OF SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION SERVICES OTTAWA (ONTARIO)
Pagination or Media Count:
H, D, and Z components were recorded at the Dickson Island station and at various distances from the observatory. The magnetic field variations had the same general character at distances of 180 km in latitude and 300 in longitude as at the observatory. Closeness of correlation at other points was markedly dependent on the bearing, although at about 10 km no changes in the character of the variations were observed. At 800 km the Z variations were frequently in opposite phase.
