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.
