Multi-faceted Paleomagnetism and Rock Magnetism: a tribute to Reidar Løvlie
Conveners: Carlo Laj , Leonardo Sagnotti  | Co-Conveners: Joseph Liddicoat , Ian Snowball 
 / Thu, 01 May, 08:30–12:00
 / Attendance Thu, 01 May, 15:30–17:00

The work of Reidar Løvlie, who passed away in 2013, is characterized by an original rock-magnetic approach that combined detailed studies of the processes by which sediments (marine, lacustrine and eolian) acquire their magnetization with the implications the acquired knowledge had on paleoenvironmental reconstructions.
This session will honor his scientific legacy. We welcome contributions that elucidate the physical, chemical and biogeochemical mechanisms that cause natural materials to become magnetized. Contributions on General Paleomagnetism and paleoenvironmental studies in which paleomagnetism plays a principal role, are also most welcome.
