Isoclinic line

Isoclinic lines are lines connecting those parts where the inclination of the Earth's magnetic field is the same in amount. They are similar to isogonic lines. which are lines connecting points of equal magnetic declination. The line drawn through the points of zero magnetic inclination is called the aclinic line.
