AbstractThe geomagnetic Observatory of L'Aquila (Italy) was founded by Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) in 1958, on the occasion of the International Geophysical Year. It is the main Italian geomagnetic observatory. Since 1999 L'Aquila Observatory belongs to the Intermagnet system, an International network grouping worldwide geomagnetic observatories able to provide Earth's magnetic field measurements according to precise quality standards. Geomagnetic field measurements in L'Aquila are used to study the variations of the Earth's geomagnetic field, both of internal and external origin. In November 2008 a new magnetometer was installed in L'Aquila within the MAGDAS project, coordinated by SERC. The location of this installation can be useful to complete the MAGDAS monitoring system to study solar-terrestrial events.
