This book, covering a global expanse of more than 800 years, recounts the largely untold story of ‘measuring terrestrial magnetism’ and of the extraordinary ‘people, planes, places and events’ that have contributed to the evolution of the magnetometer and the first anti-submarine and aeromagnetic geophysical survey operations.  It is a unique journey of science and engineering, of inventions, new methods and instruments – a compelling story of how the measurement of terrestrial magnetism has influenced the history of the world.

Measuring Terrestrial Magnetism is a major work of 630 pages, illustrated throughout with 156 plates of figures and photos, and including comprehensive Endnotes, Appendices, References and Index.
