Evaluation of the candidate Main Field model for IGRF 2000 derived from preliminary Ørsted data
Earth, Planets and Space volume 52, pages 1183–1186 (2000)
On this occasion the selection of the IGRF for 2000 was left to a small Task Force. Before it was accepted by the Task Force as IGRF 2000, the final candidate model (a truncated version of Ørsted(10c/99)) was compared with a comprehensive set of independent surface and satellite data. The method, data selection, and results of this comparison are described.
