The VII Regular All-Union Conference on the Constant Geomagnetic Field and Paleomagnetism took place in Leningrad on November 18-27, 1966. About 400 participants were registered, among them representatives of the Academies of Sciences of the Socialists States. A total of 110 reports were made on recent achievements in three scientific fields of terrestrial magnetism on the magnetic field of the earth, on paleomagnetism and on rock magnetism. Attempts were made to link the data of experimental studies on the constant geomagnetic field with theoretical concepts certain works were dedicated to studies of the earths magnetic field in outer space and to studies of the lunar magnetic field magnetic measurements taken in the Norwegian Sea by a non-magnetic schooner commanded much attention magnetic mapping and instrumental problems were the concern of several reports all data presented on paleomagnetism were confirmed by laboratory experiments. Problems connected with the studies of rock magnetism occupied a considerable part of the conference program. Methods of separating initial magnetization and determining its nature and connections with the mineralological rock composition and physical-chemical conditions should be improved. This is the basic problem which the conference drew to the attention of the scientists. The next conference will take place in Kiev in 1970.
