Estimated Values of Magnetic Field Properties

This form computes the estimated values of Earth's magnetic field, including magnetic declination (D), based on the current International Geomagnetic Reference Field (IGRF). While results are typically accurate to 30 minutes of arc, users should be aware that solar storms can cause intense, short-term disturbances in the magnetic field.
