AbstractTaking advantage of the measurements undertaken during the Albanian and Italian magnetic repeat station networks since 1990, as well as of a selected set of Ørsted satellite total field measurements, a magnetic reference model for the region comprising the Albanian territory, the southern part of the Italian Peninsula, and the Ionian Sea is presented. The model, designed to model the components of the main geomagnetic field for epochs between 1990 and 2005, has been developed by means of spherical cap harmonic analysis applied to a cap of semiangle 8°, larger than that investigated to take into account the appropriate spatial wavelength content of the main geomagnetic field over the region. The goodness of the fit to the real data suggests that the model can be used as a reference model to reduce magnetic surveys developed in the area during the time of validity of the model.
