 J. L. Han Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1023/A:1013102711400 Abstract: The large scale magnetic fields of our Galaxy have been mostly revealed by rotation measures ($RM$s) of pulsars and extragalactic radio sources. In the disk of our Galaxy, the average field strength over a few kpc scale is about 1.8 $\mu$G, while the total field, including the random fields on smaller scales, has a strength of about 5 $\mu$G. The local regular field, if it is part of the large scale field of a bisymmetric form, has a pitch angle of about $-8\degr$. There are at least three, and perhaps five, field reversals from the Norma arm to the outer skirt of our Galaxy.
