Part of the NATO Security through Science Series book series


Historical and recent geomagnetic measurements and geomagnetic maps of Bulgaria are given. A brief description of the Geomagnetic Observatory – Panagjuriste is included. The observatory measurements, records, calculations of the geomagnetic elements, and the geomagnetic data organization in the observatory are described.
