The recent advances in geomagnetism, paleomagnetism and magnetic fabric have further increased their already high potential in solving research questions in numerous local geological settings and on a global scale. Integrated paleomagnetic and magnetic fabric studies, together with structural geology and petrology, are indeed very efficient tools in increasing our knowledge about sedimentological, tectonic or volcanic processes on various scales. Monitoring the changes in the geomagnetic field (i.e. reversals and paleointensity) while searching for links with the evolution of Earth’s interior helps understand the kinematics of plates, dynamics of the core and mantle, long-term climate changes, true polar wander etc.
This session is intended to give an opportunity to present innovative theoretical or methodological works and their direct applications in solving both specific and global geological problems. Especially welcome are contributions combining paleomagnetic and magnetic fabric data, integrating various magnetic fabric techniques (e.g. AMS, AARM, AIRM), combining magnetic fabric with other means of fabric analysis, or showing novel approaches in data evaluation. We also solicit contributions from both experimental and theoretical aspects of paleomagnetic reconstructions, acquisition of petrofabrics or characteristic remanence and its remagnetisation, reversal records, paleointensity.
