Submicroscopic, needle-shaped titanomagnetite inclusions exsolved in silicate minerals commonly occur in mafic intrusive rocks and are protected from alteration by their silicate hosts, making them excellent candidates for paleomagnetic studies. A suite of samples containing clinopyroxene- and plagioclase-hosted magnetite inclusions from five geologically diverse sites was examined using magnetic force microscopy to image the inclusions' magnetic domain state. Alternating field demagnetization… CONTINUE READING
