Magnetometers are widely used for measuring the Earth's magnetic field, and in geophysical surveys, to detect magnetic anomalies of various types. In an aircraft's attitude and heading reference system, they are commonly used as a heading reference.
Tonight Phil Muffett will talk about work that has been carried out at our observatory to install a magnetometer and the plans for its use in the future.
