Abstract : The following data are provided as a supplement to Special Pub. No. 66, a tabulation of geomagnetic data accrued by Project MAGNET from 1953 through 1961. Supplement No. 1 is an addendum of data from 1962 through 1963 and also provides an appendix of corrections for Special Pub. No. 66. The instrument used in the measurement of the data is a Vector Airborne Magnetometer. The data are referenced to Greenwich mean time (GMT) and are listed at 5 minute intervals along each flight line. No adjustments have been made for temporal changes in the magnetic field. Geographic positions are shown to the nearest minute of latitude (LAT) and longitude (LONG), but may be in error as much as five miles in ocean areas. The date of observation is given in month, day, and year, respectively. (Author)
