The aim of the magnetic network surveys is to monitor the spatial and temporal variation of the components of Earth’s magnetic field over a certain region.
Hungary’s repeat station network was established in 1966. The original network consisted of 15 primary and 22 secondary anomaly–free sites. The mean distance between the stations was about 80 km. In this network the measurements are carried in every second year with the satisfaction of strict requirement regarding to the measurement accuracy.
With our secular surveys we joined to the European MagNetE organization, that was founded in 2003 to unify the practice and recommendations of the European network measurements.
