Abstract

The oldest geomagnetic measurements in Croatian territory date from 1806, when the first declination survey was performed on the Adriatic coast. This survey was followed by numerous geomagnetic surveys on the continent (for a review see e.g. Brkić et al., 2003). In 1928 J. Mokrovi put together all the surveys relating to the epochs of 1806 - 1918 and used them in the calculation of the geomagnetic elements for the epoch 1927.5. Mokrovi proclaimed the significance of the geomagnetic observatory and pointed out the relationship between horizontal intensity anomalies and the geological structure of the Earth’s crust.
