Lithuania is

successfully integrated in the European geomagnetic field research

activities. Six secular variation research stations were established

in 1999 and precise geomagnetic field measurements were performed

there in 1999, 2001, 2004, 2007 and 2016. Obtained diurnal magnetic

field variations at measuring station and neighbouring observatories

were analysed. All measurements are reduced to the mean of the year

using data from geomagnetic observatory of Belsk. Based on the

measured data the analysis of geomagnetic field parameter secular

changes was performed. Results of the presented research are useful

for updating the old geomagnetic data as well as for estimation of

accuracy of declination model.
