RECORDS of geomagnetic reversals 'frozen' into the magnetic components of sediments provide a means to study the time-dependent behaviour of the geomagnetic field during polarity transitions. Although sedimentary records have the advantage of being readily available and continuous, the process by which they acquire a remanent magnetization is still not fully understood1. Magnetites, which lose their magnetization at relatively high temperatures (≲580 °C), are generally considered to carry the… CONTINUE READING
