Tables of geomagnetic field parameters. Tables of the geomagnetic field, B. and of the integral adiabatic invariant, I, are computed for all except the outer part of the magnetosphere. These tables are an extension of those in a previous report, R-368, Geomagnetic Field Lines in Space. The values of I are expressed in a spherical harmonic series of 196 terms, appropriate to values expressed by the Finch and Leaton coefficients for 1955.0.
