a unit of magnetic field strength. It is equal to 10-5 tesla.

gauss

A cgs (non-SI) unit of magnetic field strength, which approximates that of the earth's magnetic field at its surface (circa 0.5–1G). One gauss (G) = 1 line of flux/cm2. As larger magnetic fields are common in MRIs, gauss has been largely replaced by tesla (T), where 1 T = 10,000 G.
