NB. The phase indication behind a measurement refers to the phasing of the instruments used. See the page The instruments used. The correction of the magnetic declination was obtained from the website of the NOAA [14.1].

NB. For all measurements below the side walls contain one stone. In a comparison between measurement phase I and IV (see the old measurements of the Ardèche) a deviation of 2° is possible then.
