Magnetic Observatory Jaipur

Jaipur magnetic observatory was established in the year 1975 in the campus of Malviya Regional Engineering College campus to fill the gap between the existing magnetic observatories Alibag and Sabhawala (Survey of India). This observatory along with Ujjain was established in collaboration with IZMIRAN (USSR) under 145 o geomagnetic meridian project. The objective of this project was to have network of magnetic observatories from magnetic equator to magnetic pole. Although this project was for three years only but seeing the importance of these locations in understanding global Sq current system, the Institute decided to make them semi-permanent. Due to some logistic difficulties Jaipur observatory was discontinued in 1988. The Institute could restart an observatory in September 2002 at nearby location in Jaipur in the land of Forest Dept. of Govt. of Rajasthan.

Magnetic data from this observatory are sent to H.Q. in near real time.
