Inferring the intensity of the Earth's magnetic field from archeomagnetic or paleomagnetic measurements is still a highly complex task. In the last years a wealth of new methods have been developed to improve or simplify both, absolute and relative paleointensity determination.
Here we will invite theoretical and experimental studies of the underlying methods as well as comparative studies between different techniques to discuss their advantages and shortcomings. We also invite contributions which help to improve our knowledge of the time evolution of the geomagnetic field strength.
