Abstract & Keywords
Abstract: Zhaoqing geomagtic station is located in Liantang Town, Gaoyao County, Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province. It belongs to national geomagnetic reference station, and also is a member of INTERMAGNET. It is one of the eight earliest geomagnetic stations in China. This dataset contains the geomagnetic observation data since the construction of the Meridian Project in 2010, including original observation data of horizontal component, vetical component of magnetic field and magnetic declination. It can be used in various areas of research, such as geomagnetism, space environment, seismology, magnetic storm and interactions between different spheres of the Earth.
