Abstract

The main features of the earth’s magnetic field are described and an analysis is given of a uniformly magnetized sphere which gives a first approximation to the earth’s field. The origin of the geomagnetic field is discussed in some detail. Time variations of the field are also discussed-both long term (secular) changes and transient variations, including a brief account of magnetic storms.
