Recent Advances in Environmental Magnetism and Paleomagnetism

Edited by: Hirokuni Oda, Yuhji Yamamoto, Xixi Zhao, Satria Bijaksana, Qingsong Liu

This special issue is based on Session SE04 "Recent advances in paleo-, rock and environmental magnetism" held during the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) 2014 Meeting (28 July - 1 August in Sapporo, Japan). Environmental magnetism is an important application of rock magnetism to understand the paleoclimate and paleoenvironment on Earth and other planets. On the other hand, the past ambient magnetic fields have influenced environmental processes on Earth and other planets. Thus, the issue especially focuses on environmental magnetism and paleomagnetism in order to understand environments on Earth and other planets. Submissions are also presented from authors who did not attend the Session SE04 of AOGS 2014 Meeting.

    Pulsed-field magnetometry for rock magnetism

    An improved method is proposed for measuring dynamic magnetizations of bulk volcanic rock samples induced by a pulsed-field of 0.7 T and a duration of 10 ms. The transient magnetization is measured by a sensin...

    Archeointensity study on baked clay samples taken from the reconstructed ancient kiln: implication for validity of the Tsunakawa-Shaw paleointensity method

    In 1972, a reconstruction experiment of a kiln had been done to reproduce an excavated kiln of the seventh century in Japan. Baked clay samples were taken from the floor surface and −20 cm level, and they have...
