ABSTRACT

The paper presents the survey results of the normal geomagnetic field in the Republic of Macedonia. Net of 15 repeat stations was created for defining the elements of the normal geomagnetic field, according to the area of the Republic of Macedonia. Selection of every repeat station was made by the standards of INTERMAGNET. Intensity of the total field vector, declination and inclination are observed during the surveying of the geomagnetic field. Maps of the geomagnetic field elements were developed using the method for data processing from the Royal Meteorological Observatory in Dourbes, Belgium. Total field vector varies in interval 1,32 ≤ ΔТ ≤ 140,34; the declination 0,0354 ≤ ΔD ≤ 0,4736 and inclination 0,0003 ≤ ΔI ≤ 0,1729.

Values of horizontal, northern X, eastern Y and vertical Z component are calculated
based on the relations among the geomagnetic field elements.
