  Information - MPRG08 Magnetic field observation: where have we been and where are we going?

Event Information
The study of the Earth's system as a whole cannot be considered complete without understanding and characterizing the Earth magnetic field at different spatial and temporal scales. High-quality magnetic observations have been obtained in recent years from a number of satellite missions, such as Oersted, CHAMP, SAC-C. The magnetic satellite data, combined with ground-based data, have provided unique opportunities for studying the core magnetic field and its secular variation, the core flow, the mantle conductivity and lithospheric composition, as well as the structure and dynamics of the ionospheric and magnetospheric currents. This session will provide an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of recent results on all improvements in our knowledge of the magnetic field, from core to space, together with future developments in measuring, modelling and interpreting the Earth´s magnetic field with the ESA forthcoming Swarm constellation.
