Gibson Consulting's
Gravity & Magnetics Mall

This is an attempt to organize gravity and magnetics resources on the internet into some systematic, useful format. Suggestions are welcomed! The lists include companies, governments, and specific topics, including some on-line technical papers. Please let me know if you know of sites that should be added! And the last thing I want to do is leave out anyone who wants to be included. Thanks!
