Abstract
    It took some years after the first International Polar Year (1882–1883) until magnetic measurements were coordinated in the Commission for Terrestrial Magnetism and Atmospheric Electricity, within the International Meteorological Committee from 1891. The investigation of the magnetic field of the earth became one of the most important goals of the leading nations, which invested a lot of money in the establishment of magnetic observatories at home and in their colonies.
