Abstract: Geomagnetic records from some observatories give a strong indication that there was a rapid, impulsive change in geomagnetic secular acceleration around 1990. Using data coming from about 80 observatories widely distributed all over the world, the structure of the secular variation for the X, Y and Z magnetic field intensities around 1990 was investigated. Evidence of a new recent jerk in 1991 was found. The 1991 geomagnetic jerk features (worldwide character of the Y second time derivative jump intensity and of the occurrence time) are compared with the character of the previous well known jerk events of 1969 and 1978.
