There are many types of magnetometers. At Halley and on the AGOs, we use EDA fluxgate and search coil magnetometers.
A magnetic field is caused by electrical currents. The magnetic field measured by a magnetometer on the Earth's surface is made up from a number of different current systems inside the earth and in geospace. We interpret magnetometer data to remotely sense these geospace currents.
