Magnetic Observatories

The National Geomagnetism Program of the Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) operates a network of 13 Magnetic Observatories across Canada. Twelve of these observatories use the modern CANMOS instrumentation. Alert and the recently closed observatory Mould Bay use the older AMOS MK III instrumentation.
