This report contains a detailed summary of the data used, the modelling techniques employed and the results obtained in the production of the World Magnetic Model 2000. This model is designed for use in air and sea navigation systems and is valid till 2005.0.
The derivation of World Magnetic Model 2000 has been the joint responsibility of the British Geological Survey (BGS) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS). The World Magnetic Model is the standard model in UK Ministry of Defence and US Department of Defense, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and the World Hydrographic Office (WHO) navigation and attitude/heading referencing systems. It is also used widely in civilian navigation systems.
