      Historical observations are important even for modern science, such as space research. The Clementinum in Prague was one of the first observatories where systematic measurements of the geomagnetic field were started. We focus on the beginning of those Prague measurements, which were introduced by Karl Kreil in 1839. We describe archived data from that time, some details about the main instrument for observing magnetic storms, and the first magnetic mapping in Bohemia.

    • Abstract: Understanding the drift of Shackleton's Endurance during its last days before it sank in November 1915, using meteorological reanalysis data

      Poor visibility on the 3 d prior to the sinking of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s vessel, Endurance, during November 1915, hampered navigator Frank Worsley’s attempts to record its position. Thus, whilst the wreck was located in the Weddell Sea in March 2022, the drift path of Endurance during its final 3 d at the surface remained unknown. We used data from a modern meteorological model to reconstruct possible trajectories for this unknown portion of Endurance’s journey.

      Due to anthropogenic disturbances on the Potsdam Magnetic Observatory a sub-observatory was installed in 1907 at the village of Seddin. Only variometer recordings were performed in Seddin. The launch of the DC powered service of the Berlin suburban railways in 1928 influenced the observations in Potsdam and Seddin. The absolute measurements were moved to Seddin and a new observatory was planned in Niemegk. Seddin Observatory was closed in 1932.

      Gauß, Weber und Humboldt initiated the systematic observation of the Earth’s magnetic field in Germany. The first geomagnetic observatories were installed in Munich, Berlin and Wilhelmshaven. The Potsdam Magnetic Observatory was officially opened on 1 January 1890. Due to anthropogenic disturbances a sub-observatory was installed in 1907 at the village of Seddin. The launch of the DC powered service of the Berlin suburban railway system in 1928 terminated the observations in Potsdam.

      The article describes the international seismological cooperation at the beginning of the last century and how this cooperation changed due to WWI. These changes were the direct reasons leading to the foundation of the Deutsche Seismologische Gesellschaft in 1922, which changed its name to Deutsche Geophysikalische Gesellschaft two years later. Then it describes the further development of the relationship between German geophysicists and their colleagues until the beginning of WWII.

  • A review of different mascon approaches for regional gravity field
           modelling since 1968

    • Abstract: A review of different mascon approaches for regional gravity field modelling since 1968

      Hist. Geo Space. Sci., 13, 205–217, https://doi.org/10.5194/hgss-13-205-2022, 2022
      The term mascon either refers to the fact of a significant gravity anomaly within a celestial body or to a modelling of these gravitational anomalies by localising base functions. The localising base functions that are labelled as mascons include point masses or surface elements based on the simple layer representation. In the case of surface elements, the surface density is constant per mascon, and each localising base function is a two-dimensional step function on the sphere.

      The paper compares the historical context, organization, personnel, conduct, and scientific innovation of the voyages of HMS Challenger (1872–6) and SMS Gazelle (1874–6). Though the expeditions were in many regards similar, the Challenger expedition became famous and is regarded as marking the start of global marine science, while the Gazelle voyage remains almost unknown. Why' A surprising factor may be what we now know as "health and safety" issues.

      Kakioka Magnetic Observatory (KMO) has been monitoring the geomagnetic field and electric field at Kakioka, Japan, since 1913. It has promoted a variety of observations and research activities. In 1972, KMO developed the Kakioka Automatic Standard Magnetometer (KASMMER) system, which enabled them to provide geomagnetic field data of the highest quality. Today, KMO operates a network of observatories in Japan and maintains the observations with the longest history in East Asia.

      Lerwick Observatory in Shetland has recently celebrated its centenary. Measurements of atmospheric electricity were made at the site between 1925 and 1984. The instruments and equipment used for this are discussed and the value of the measurements obtained assessed. A major aspect of the atmospheric electricity work was explaining the dramatic changes which followed the nuclear weapons test period. Although less well known, there are strong parallels with the discovery of the ozone hole.

      The Commission on Tephrochronology (COT), formed in 1961, comprises geoscientists who characterize, map, and date tephra (volcanic ash) layers and use them as stratigraphic linking and dating tools in geological, palaeoenvironmental, and archaeological research. We review COT's origins and growth and show how its leadership and activities – hosting meetings, supporting ECRs, developing new analytical and dating methods, and publishing volumes – have strongly influenced tephrochronology globally.

      The road to success for Danish seismologist Inge Lehmann (1888–1993) – known for her 1936 discovery of the Earth's inner core – was difficult and full of challenges. While she herself refused to accept any notion of gender difference ascribed, society at large was less open-minded. Using newly discovered, unpublished historical documents, this article examines to what degree her gender played a decisive role in her graduate and postgraduate experiences.

      We present the history of how and why a high-power radio wave transmitter facility with large antenna arrays was built in northern Norway in the 1970s with the aim of injecting radio waves into the auroral ionosphere. The facility has conducted fundamental research on plasmas, by heating electrons and exciting plasma waves in the ionosphere; the effects of these experiments have been measured using a host of other instruments, such as incoherent scatter radars, radio receivers, and cameras.

      For a long time, human beings have lived with the idea of cycles, as attested by many ancient traditions. This perception led our way of observing and interpreting the most diverse types of phenomena. In the Earth sciences, cyclicity has crucial epistemological value. It offers simple solutions for cause and consequence analysis in time and space. The intention here is to review how such ideas emerged in the geosciences, supporting current stratigraphic principles and practices.

      In this article, I trace the history of the models of ice ages during the period between the nineteenth and twentieth century. Some previous versions of ice age models were briefly discussed. I present a bird’s-eye view of the scientific collaboration in developing a model and of the reasons behind the success of the Milankovitch model as well.

      Hist. Geo Space. Sci., 13, 1–21, https://doi.org/10.5194/hgss-13-1-2022, 2022
      EISCAT, the European Incoherent SCATter system, was an advanced research radar system established in northern Scandinavia in the mid-1970s for studies of the aurora and the earth's plasma environment. This paper describes the operation, development, problems and successes of the system during its first 2 decades, as recalled by its former deputy director.

    • Abstract: The bicentenary of Georg Hartung, a German pioneer geologist, explorer, and illustrator
      Carlos A. Góis-Marques, Miguel Menezes de Sequeira, and José Madeira
      Hist. Geo Space. Sci., 12, 217–223, https://doi.org/10.5194/hgss-12-217-2021, 2021
      We present a tribute to Georg Friedrich Karl Hartung (1821–1891), a German geologist, on his 200th birthday. He was influenced by eminent 19th century scientific personalities and pioneered geological observations and sampling in the Azores, Madeira, and Canary Islands volcanic archipelagos. Later in his life, he travelled to the USA and explored Scandinavia. His work in Macaronesia is deemed classic, and many have been enriched by his detailed geological illustrations.

  • Scientific journeys to one of the oldest copper cementation sites in
           Central Europe (Smolník, Slovakia)

    • Abstract: Scientific journeys to one of the oldest copper cementation sites in Central Europe (Smolník, Slovakia)
      Pavel Hronček, Bohuslava Gregorová, Dana Tometzová, and Miloš Jesenský
      Hist. Geo Space. Sci., 12, 179–196, https://doi.org/10.5194/hgss-12-179-2021, 2021
      The study brings the first comprehensively processed historical–geographical work dealing with one of the oldest places of commercial copper production using cementation in Europe – Smolník (Upper Hungary; present day Slovakia). Its relevance lies not only in professional circles but also for the needs of the general public (e.g. mining tourism). The study contributes to the preservation of a forgotten and unknown mining heritage in one of the most important mining towns in former Upper Hungary.

  • On the high scientific quality of early research on strain and deformation
           fabrics (1835–1908)

    • Abstract: On the high scientific quality of early research on strain and deformation fabrics (1835–1908)
      Pablo J. Torres Carbonell
      Hist. Geo Space. Sci., 12, 197–216, https://doi.org/10.5194/hgss-12-197-2021, 2021
      Research on rock strain done during part of the 19th century has a level of scientific quality that is not usually acknowledged. The objective of this paper is to put these older papers in perspective, highlighting the careful field observations of these early researchers, the focus they made on the study of deformed objects, and how they gave birth to the fundamental equations and basic concepts that we use today to calculate rock strain.
