Paleomagnetic Procedures

Part of the Modern Approaches in Geophysics book series (MAGE, volume 17)


In this chapter,we have outlined how to obtain samples and reviewed routine laboratory analyses. The end product of these efforts is a set of paleomagnetic vectors which one hopes represent ancient geomagnetic field conditions. Calculation of mean directions and quantification of scatter of paleomagnetic vector data is the subject of the following chapter.
