Laboratory of Magnetostratigraphy and Paleogeography (PalMag)

 

 

We study the natural remanent magnetic field preserved in rocks to reconstruct the polarity reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field as a tool to correlate and date rock sequences (magnetostratigraphy) as well as to map the position of continents in the past (paleogeography). We study the anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility as a tool to understand depositional processes in sedimentary and volcanic sequences.
