Division I - WG 2: Paleomagnetism

WGI-2 deals with all applications of the paleomagnetic record in geological materials, in particular in igneous and sedimentary rocks. The applications may be classified in two very broad areas: those dealing with our understanding of the geomagnetic field, including secular variation, paleointensities, field reversals, and the polarity time scale, and those using the paleomagnetic record to understand the evolution of the Earth from small to global scales.
