Resolution No.7 (1997): Revisiting early palaeomagnetism sites (Division I)

IAGA, recognising the valuable contribution of early palaeomagnetic studies of lavas for describing the palaeosecular variation of the geomagnetic field and the present need for high-quality data of this type for understanding time-averaged field behaviour in the Earth's core, and noting that early palaeomagnetic studies used methods that have since been superseded, recommends that attention be given to repeating early studies on important sections using modern methods.
