Abstract: Six geomagnetic repeat stations were established over the territory of Slovakia. The locations of the observation points were chosen in a way to provide long time series of geomagnetic measurements at the same places (or nearly the same ones). Thus the series start in the middle of the 19th century. In this paper, the long time series of three geomagnetic elements D, H and I are reviewed. Results of the last geomagnetic measurements at the six observation points (reduced to the 2004.5 epoch) are presented and linear models of the distribution of geomagnetic elements and of their secular variations are shown.
Key words: Magnetic field, secular variations, magnetic survey.
