Relation to between Paleomagnetism and plate tectonic
Throwing fresh light on Continent tectonics with Paleomagnetism and Archeomagnetism

Course Content

What is the purpose of Paleomagnetism? The types of remanent magnetisation. The relations between the types of remanent magnetisation and paleomagnetism. Sampling in the field for the application of paleomagnetism. The types of paleomagnetic samples. The types of magnetic purifications on the samples. The difference between primer and seconder magnetisation. Discriminating between the primer and seconder magnetisations on the samples. Teaching the difference between Paleomagnetism and Archeomagnetism. Interpreration of continent tectonics by using the D and the I angles of magnetic components.
