EMRP3.5

The detailed understanding of the geomagnetic field strength (palaeointensity) is fundamental for several Sciences disciplines (Geophysics, Stratigraphy and Volcanology, Engineering, Paleoclimatology, Human history and Archaeology, Art, etc..). Despite the great effort made to improve time and space resolution of both regional and global reconstructions, fundamental properties of the geomagnetic field, such as the average strength and its spatial and temporal short and long-term variations, remain debated and fundamental questions remain unanswered. Indeed, the methods to determine past geomagnetic field strength present difficulties and discrepancies, resulting in scattered and sparse records.

This session welcomes abstracts presenting methodological advances, new data and models for a better understanding of the strength of the Earth´s magnetic field and features. Contributions presenting absolute and relative palaeointensities, rock magnetic and micromagnetic investigation applied to address the palaeointensity determination issue are also welcomed.
