This session will focus on all aspects of rock and mineral magnetism, encompassing the study of magnetic minerals and their fundamental properties as well as the application of rock and mineral magnetism to problems in palaeo-, archaeo-, and environmental magnetism. Topics include, but are not limited to, theoretical and experimental studies on the reliability and fidelity of magnetic remanence carried by various minerals, alteration processes affecting magnetic remanence carriers, studies on rock magnetic properties of new and unusual materials used in palaeomagnetic, archaeomagnetic, or environmental magnetic studies, the effects of magnetostatic and exchange interactions in single- or multiphase intergrowths of magnetic minerals, and low and high temperature properties of magnetic minerals. We also encourage authors to submit contributions on new experimental techniques, new techniques for magnetic mineral synthesis, microscopic observations of micromagnetic structures, and results from numerical micromagnetic modelling.
