IAGA is concerned with the understanding and knowledge that
result from studies of the magnetic and electrical properties of:
- the Earth's core, mantle and crust
- the middle and upper atmosphere
- the ionosphere and the magnetosphere
- the Sun, the solar wind, the planets and interplanetary bodies
IAGA encourages free exchange of scientific information,
facilitates international collaboration in research and, through
the Scientific Assemblies it organises and the meetings and workshops
it sponsors, provides opportunities for discussion and publication
of the research results.
IAGA is committed to enabling the involvement of young scientists
and scientists in developing countries in the Association's activities.
IAGA serves scientists and decision-makers in research establishments,
government agencies, intergovernmental bodies, universities and
IAGA invites scientists throughout the world to participate
in the Association's activities; there are no membership formalities
