Marsden Squares are units of measurement in a Marsden projection. Marsden squares utilize the latitude/longitude coordinate system. From 80 degrees north latitude to 70 degrees south latitude, each Marsden Square occupies a ten degree latitude by ten degree longitude area.


The Marsden Square is named after William Marsden who was the Admiralty Secretary for Great Britain at the turn of the nineteenth century.


Marsden Squares have been broadly used by meteorologists to track weather patterns.
