The combined processing of geomagnetic intensity vector projections and absolute magnitude measurements
A method for the combined processing measurements of the projections and the absolute magnitudes of geomagnetic field intensity vectors, based on mathematical technology of local approximation models, is proposed. The approach realized in this paper, based on the proposed method, provides an increase in quality of the measurements of the projections of the geomagnetic intensity vector. An algorithm for the two-stage combined processing of the measurements of projections and absolute magnitudes of geomagnetic field intensity vectors is developed. The operation of the combined processing algorithm was tested on models and observatory measurements. The estimates of the combined processing algorithm errors were obtained using statistical modelling. The reduction of the root-mean-square error values was achieved for the estimates of the projections of geomagnetic field intensity vectors.
