Paleomagnetism of Precambrian dikes in the Kola part of northeastern Fennoscandia and its relation to the Svecofennian orogeny
Based on the results of the preliminary paleomagnetic investigation of 57 Precambrian dikes of the Kola Peninsula, in 31 of them a stable monopolar component of natural remanent magnetization (NRM) is revealed (D = 353.2°, I = 53.0°, K = 58, and α95 = 3.4°). The peculiarities of the distribution of this magnetization component within the Kola Peninsula and the rock magnetic characteristics of the dikes in which this component is isolated suggest its secondary nature and relate the mechanism and formation time to the remagnetization processes which took place in the northwest of Fennoscandia about 1.8 billion years ago during the Svecofennian orogeny. The corresponding geomagnetic pole of Fennoscandia has the coordinates Plat = 54.5°, Plong = 224.0°, and A95 = 3.9° and is located in the immediate vicinity of the known Paleoproterozoic (1.9–1.7 Ga) poles of Baltica (Khramov et al., 1997; Veikkolainen et al., 2014).
