Division I - WG 3: Rock- and Environmental Magnetism

WGI-3 fosters the exchange and dissemination of information in rock and mineral magnetism. Its areas of interest include fundamental magnetic properties of minerals as a function of temperature and composition, and application of this information to problems in paleomagnetism, environmental magnetism and magnetic anisotropy. Applications include understanding (i) how rocks acquire and retain their magnetization for studies in paleomagnetism and paleointensity, (ii) how magnetic mineralogy responds to change in environmental conditions, or (iii) how the magnetic anisotropy of single minerals contribute to the anisotropy of a rock.
