Geomagnetic Observatories

We operate the Adolf-Schmidt-Observatory for Geomagnetism in Niemegk with its workshops as well as calibration and training facilities. The more than 85 years long time series of the observatory is one of the most important benchmark datasets in geomagnetism. We also operate or support a number of geomagnetic observatories worldwide. Our main data repository is the INTERMAGNET programme. We derive the Kp index of geomagnetic activity, which is one of the most important global space weather and space climate indicators.
