isogonic line

In the study of terrestrial magnetism, a line drawn through all points on the earth's surface having the same magnetic declination; not to be confused with magnetic meridian.

The particular isogonic line drawn through all points having zero declination is called the agonic line.
Compare isoclinic line, isogon.
