Nagpur M.O. (1991) is located in central part of India. For understanding the complexities of equatorial electrojet feature, a control station outside its influence, but having similar variations caused by distant (magnetospheric) currents become crucial. In the study of paleomagnetism, the ancient poles were reduced to the latitude and longitude of a central place in the country.
