Abstract: From 2000 to 2005 two exploring geophysical missions were undertaken in the Tyrrhenian deep seafloor at depths between around -2000 and -3000 m in the framework of the European-funded GEOSTAR Projects. The considered missions in this work are GEOSTAR-2 and ORIONGEOSTAR-3 with the main scientific objective of investigating the deep-sea by means of an automatic multiparameter benthic observatory station working continuously from around 5 to 12 months each time. During the two GEOSTAR deep seafloor missions, scalar and vector magnetometers acquired useful magnetic data both to improve global and regional geomagnetic reference models and to infer specific geoelectric information about the two sites of magnetic measurements by means of a forward modelling.
