HISTMAG database

Query the HISTMAG Database:

HISTMAG database combines historical and archeo-/paleomagnetic records of the geomagnetic field.
Historical data were either newly acquired or collected from available publications (e.g., Jonkers et al. (2003), Korte et al. (2009), etc.). Archeomagnetic and lava records were directly integrated from GEOMAGIA50.v3 database (Brown et al., 2015).
See the paper (Arneitz et al., 2017) and manual for details. Please report any problems to Patrick Arneitz. The HISTMAG project was funded by the Austrian Science Fund (P24722).

Updates February 2021:

Several historical datasets have been revised and corrected according to original sources (see log-file). Recent archeomagnetic studies from GEOMAGIA50.v3.4 (from September 2020) and Schnepp et al. (2020) have been added.
