Geophysical activity during 1952 reached a new all-time high: On the basis of incomplete reports, the full time services of 948 crews were utilized the world over last year, an increase of 157 crews over 1951.

There was a slight decrease in gravity operations from 1,526 crew-months in 1951 to 1,502 crew-months in 1952. The reports received on magnetometer activity seem to be neither complete nor reliable, and no attempt to estimate a trend seems justified.
