The absolute measurement session of the XIII IAGA Workshop was held at the Boulder Magnetic Observatory June 10-13, 2008. Approximately 85 people attended this session. The main focus of the session was for observers to make and compare measurements using DIFlux magnetometers. The session also included absolute measurement training, with lectures and practical training. Also included were data processing training, an introduction to solar observations, and a discussion concerning timing for one-second data collection.

Testing and demonstration of three instruments under development was also carried out during the absolute measurement session. The auto DI Flux was demonstrated by Jean Rasson. A triaxial DI Flux was demonstrated by Uli Auster and Anne Hemshorn. A fast delta Declination/delta Inclination (dIdD) magnetometer was tested by Laszlo Hegymegi. Results from the Auto DI Flux and triaxial DI Flux are included in the workshop results presented below.
