Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism

encompasses the study of the geomagnetic field, from its core to space, to gain an understanding of Earth’s structure, dynamics, and history. Geomagnetists measure the Earth’s magnetic field at present and use measurements taken over the past few centuries to devise theoretical models to explain its origin. Paleomagnetists interpret fossil magnetization in rocks and sediments from the continents and oceans...Read More
