Spherical harmonic models of the geomagnetic field
Abstract
A total of 264 spherical harmonic models of the geomagnetic field were found in the literature. The major characteristics of these models are described and the methods used to produce them are briefly discussed The coefficients of these models were converted, where necessary, to the Schmidt quasinormalized form and are given in a table. A comprehensive bibliography of the original publications is given.
