With Chapter 4 we have ended our formal tour of the fields. It is time now for tourists' questions. Because we cannot discuss geomagnetism face to face, I must guess what you might ask and try to answer as coherently as possible in this final chapter. The first question I expect is, How and where are geomagnetic fields measured? The next question might be, Can you show us some examples of what scientists are presently studying? Then someone might ask, Where are field records archived? Is there a scale for space weather activity? How can we access geomagnetic information? and What are the important magnetic field websites? Finally, I have provided a reading list for those who want to further enrich their knowledge of Earth magnetism.
