An array of five sets of 8-ft (244-cm) square coils for compensation of the earth's magnetic field at five locations is described. A fluxgate system is used to keep the residual field within 2 gammas during magnetic storms and 1 gamma in other instances. Constant fields (1 Oe down to a few gammas), for experiments in small magnetic fields, can be produced at four locations independently.
