Paleomagnetism is the study of ancient geomagnetic field vectors recorded by rocks and sediments. Based on the latitudinal and azimuthal constraints from the paleomagnetic inclinations and declinations, many important discoveries about the horizontal movements of continental blocks, such as the...
Paelomagnetic and petromagnetic studies of Chinese Cenozoic sediments: Paleoclimatic, tectonic, and evolutionary implicationsDownload
The anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) was investigated in three Chinese Loess Plateau sedimentary sections along a W–E transect. Previously published models assumed that winter monsoons were responsible for the magnetic fabric formation of loess sequences. In our new interpretation, the...
Paleomagnetic studies of volcanic rocks in Siberia and sedimentary rocks in Southern Alberta: From long-term geomagnetic field variations to age determinationsDownload
Paleomagnetism is a fundamental tool to understand the ancient variations of Earth’s magnetic field through time. Important applications to geochronology and paleography come from interpreting the variations of the planetary magnetic vector. This dissertation explores the different applications...
