For the various measures, designated below, the following symbols are used here' D, magnetic declination; H, horizontal intensity; Z, vertical intensity; R, absolute diurnal range, ov difference between extreme daily values of element considered; and A, diurnal range of hourly values (mean value over 60-minute interval).
