The data set contains the variation of the magnetic elements (North, East and Vertical) for 7 sites on Kerguelen at one minute interval. The data were recorded between 14/1/1988 and 18/2/1988.
The header file of each data file contains the locality coordinates and some sensor information. Each subsequent block contains one hour data values. The block header line gives the date, time temperature ... and battery voltages, followed by the full field value for the North, East and Vertical element. Subsequent lines contain the last 3 digits of the values. 3 lines for North, East and Vertical. The values are in NanoTesla.
The data were recorded with a three-component self recording fluxgate magnetometer. (Chamalaun and Walker, J. Geomag. Geoelectr. 34, 491-507, 1982).
The experiment was conducted in cooperation with Bureau central de Magnetisme Terrestre (France), and attempted to determine the magnetic coast effect for Kerguelen island.
