  title={Magnetic Anomalies Over Oceanic Ridges},
  author={Frederick John Vine and Drummond Hoyle Matthews},
Investigation of a marine magnetic polarity reversal boundary in cross section at the northern boundary of the Kane Megamullion, Mid-Atlantic Ridge, 23°40′N
Near-bottom magnetic field measurements made by the submersible Nautile during the 1992 Kanaut Expedition define the cross-sectional geometry of magnetic polarity reversal boundaries and the verticalExpand

Nature of the Cuvier Abyssal Plain crust, offshore NW Australia
Magnetic stripes have long been assumed to be indicative of oceanic crust. However, continental crust heavily intruded by magma can also record magnetic stripes. We re-evaluate the nature of theExpand
Continental Drift (Paleomagnetism)
Paleomagnetism is the study of the Earth’s ancient magnetic field through the record of remanent magnetism preserved in rocks. The directions of remanent magnetization are used to deduce the positionExpand
The Anna Karenina principle: A way of thinking about success in science
The Anna Karenina principle is introduced as a way of thinking about success in science in three central areas in (modern) science: (a) peer review of research grant proposals and manuscripts, (b) citation of publications, and (c) new scientific discoveries (recognition as a scarce resource).

The Anna Karenina principle: A concept for the explanation of success in science
This paper introduces the Anna Karenina principle as a concept that can explain success in science and refers to three central areas in modern science in which scarce resources will most usually lead to failure. Expand
Oblique rifting at oceanic ridges: Relationship between spreading and stretching directions from earthquake focal mechanisms
The relationship between spreading and stretching directions is investigated at oblique-spreading oceanic ridges using earthquake focal mechanisms. The stretching direction at ridge axes correspondsExpand
Low-temperature alteration and magnetic changes of variably altered pillow basalts
SUMMARY Pillow basalt fragments from the East Pacific Rise, dredged during the Phoenix expedition, often show discoloured rims due to alteration. A suite of nine pillow basalts with such discolouredExpand
Spatial Logic In Paleogeography and the Explanation Of Continental Drift
Abstract The scientific methods employed in paleogeography have followed two distinct logics. Spatial logic accepts morphology, spatial distribution, and spatial association as primary evidence ofExpand


Magnetic Anomalies over the Mid-Atlantic Ridge
THE intensity of the Earth's magnetic field over the Atlantic Ocean has been measured on a number of flights organized by the Department of Mines and Technical Surveys of Canada and also underExpand
Magnetic anomaly over Mohole drill hole EM7
Cox and Doell [1962] have found the basalt samples from hole EM7 of the experimental drilling phase of the Mohole project to be reversely magnetized with respect to the earth's magnetic field. ThisExpand
Magnetic properties of the basalt in hole EM 7, Mohole project
The average direction of the remanent magnetization of the basalt layer at the bottom of hole EM 7 is inclined 36° above the horizontal, indicating that the layer is reversely magnetized. DetailedExpand
Total magnetic field surveys between New Zealand and the Ross Sea
During the summers of 1958–1959 and 1959–1960, total magnetic field surveys were made with ship-towed nuclear spin magnetometers between New Zealand and the Ross Sea. The total field contours areExpand
Continent and Ocean Basin Evolution by Spreading of the Sea Floor
Magnetic survey off the west coast of North America
A ship-towed magnetometer survey of an area 250–300 miles wide off the foot of the continental slope along the coast of California has revealed a narrow pattern of anomalies of about 400 gammasExpand
Magnetic Correlation in Volcanic Districts
Investigation of Tertiary and Quaternary plateau basalts in Iceland has shown that both normal and reverse natural permanent magnetization is present in alternating zones of about 25 flows each. TheExpand
Trans-atlantic profile of total magnetic intensity and topography, Dakar to Barbados
Abstract The development of the airborne magnetometer makes possible magnetic surveys of ocean areas without specially constructed non-magnetic ships. Early flights over marine areas indicated that aExpand
