The time dependence of the polarization of a stored proton beam was measured near an induced depolarizing resonance. The resonance was created by a magnetic field which oscillated along the beam axis. The distance to the resonance was varied by changing the frequency of the oscillating field. The resonance was approached from either side and the time dependence of the polarization was found to be symmetric with respect to the resonance, and in agreement with an earlier measurement that involved an intrinsic depolarizing resonance.
