To determine whether the ~200 Ma Central Atlantic magmatic province (CAMP) coincides with a normal polarity bias and a purported abrupt change in polar wander at the J1 cusp, we collected samples for paleomagnetic study from 80 sites distributed over a ~2500 mthick section of sedimentary units that are interbedded with and overlie CAMP lavas in the Hartford basin, which together represent the initial 2.4 Myr of the Jurassic according to cycle stratigraphic analysis. Characteristic directions… CONTINUE READING
