Overhauser magnetometers are the basic instruments for scalar measurements; however, their accuracy is determined at the time of manufacture only. Because of various effects affecting the gyromagnetic ratio of the used fluid or the stability of the os-cillators in the circuitry, their accuracy should be verified during the instrument lifetime. Specific methodology of data pro-cessing and determination of the Overhauser magnetometer uncertainty is described in this paper.
