Abstract:

The procedure for producing the edited data base of the AFGL Magnetometer Network is described in detail. The input to the procedure is the series of archive tapes on which the raw data from the seven network stations are recorded the output is several series of tapes containing the edited data from the fluxgate magnetometer only. Each series has either a one-second or a one-minute averaged sampling interval and is written in a tape format selected for compatibility with one or more specific computer types used at the Air Force Geophysics Laboratory, The World Data Center, and other scientific institutions. Detailed instructions are given for the execution of each of the computer programs employed in the procedure as well as for the basic operation of the network minicomputer on which the procedure is carried out. The procedure is highly automated and the description provided is sufficient to permit its being carried out by an untrained operator.
