SUMMARY We report new absolute palaeointensity estimates using basalts from northeastern China (K/Ar age, 125‐120 Ma) using the modified Shaw method in conjunction with the microwave technique. Samples for the palaeointensity experiments were selected mainly based on their good reversibility of thermomagnetic curves and single primary magnetization characteristics. Using the modified Shaw method, 28 out of 45 measured samples from 10 cooling units give a virtual dipole moment of (3.1 ± 1.0… CONTINUE READING
