Timing of the mammalian faunas in the Nihewan Basin, North China has provided insights into our understanding of Quaternary biochronology and biostratigraphy in East Asia. Here we contribute to this topic with detailed magnetostratigraphic investigation, coupled with mineral magnetic measurements on a fluvio-lacustrine sequence in this basin, which contains the Shanshenmiaozui mammalian fauna. Magnetite and hematite were identified as the main carriers for the characteristic remanent magnetizations. Magnetostratigraphic results show that the Shanshenmiaozui sedimentary sequence recorded the Brunhes chron, the Jaramillo subchron, and the late Matuyama chron. Stratigraphic correlation in terms of lithology, magnetic susceptibility and magnetic polarity sequences between the Shanshenmiaozui, Xiaochangliang and Dachangliang sections indicates that the Shanshenmiaozui mammalian fossil layer is younger than the Xiaochangliang and Dachangliang artefact layers, which have been previously estimated to be about 1.

Paleomagnetic studies of lake bottom sediments in Japan have been reviewed to establish a method of magnetostratigraphic dating using geomagnetic secular variations and excursions. For the last For the last 60ka, the inclination record from the top 60m of the m-core from Lake Biwa may be used for dating with magnetostratigraphic correlation.
Tephrochronological data recently published revise the ages of the geomagnetic excursions in the Lake Biwa m-core. The excursion at 54m, formally known as the Blake event, is a new one from about 56ka.

A molasse sequence comprising 1. The magnetic fabric comprises primary sedimentary-compactional and secondary tectonic components. Remanence ratios derived from demagnetization data allowed the first-order estimation of remanence contributions from magnetic minerals goethite, maghemite, magnetite and hematite , and discrimination of rockmagnetic zones correlatable with distinct lithofacies, which will facilitate objective mapping.
We correlated a magnetic polarity sequence, constructed from normal and reverse polarity directions from 77 levels that passed the reversal test and represented primary remanences, with the standard geomagnetic polarity timescale to constrain the depositional age between ca. We calculated the sediment accumulation rate for polarity zones from the chronologically better constrained part below Chron C5n.

Nature and origin of magnetic minerals within the Middle Jurassic shallow-water carbonate rocks of the Paris Basin, France: implications for magnetostratigraphic dating Abstract: The Middle and Upper Jurassic Bathonian-Oxfordian shallow-water carbonate rocks from the Paris Basin, France, consist mainly of oolitic and bioclastic limestones that are hydrocarbon reservoirs in the subsurface. Despite a preliminary positive study, these deposits have been considered to be largely remagnetized Rochette, private communication , and hence not amenable to palaeomagnetic dating.

Outcrop du jour : One Two Three Context. The Earth generates a magnetic field that encompasses the entire planet. To first order approximation, resembles bar magnet, slightly misaligned with Earth’s rotational axis. It exists because currents in the electrically-conducting fluid outer-core produce dynamo-effect. At a given spot, the orientation of the magnetic field is described by: Inclination: The “dip” angle between field lines and the horizontal.
Declination: The “strike” angle between field lines and true north.

The recovery and subsequent prolific radiation of mammals in the northern Western Interior of North America following the Cretaceous—Paleogene K—P boundary is well documented in rocks attributed to the Puercan Land Mammal Age. The most complete Puercan record is that of the Tullock Formation, which crops out widely in Garfield and McCone counties, eastern Montana. The Tullock Formation overlies the dinosaur-bearing Hell Creek Formation and consists of a stratigraphic series of channel and overbank deposits from which well-preserved Puercan faunas have been collected.
These channel deposits are typically bracketed by widespread coal beds. The IrZ- and Z-coals mark the base of the Puercan at the K—P boundary as defined by the highest appearing local occurrences of in situ dinosaur fossils, the highest stratigraphic occurrence of Cretaceous pollen, and an anomalously high concentration of the element iridium Ir. Earliest Torrejonian To1? The Y through W coals, as well as the fossil vertebrate-bearing sandstones of the Garbani Channel and Purgatory Hill, are contained in an overlying zone of normal polarity, correlated with chron C29n.
Rocks immediately above the W-Coal through the U-Coal, which include the Farrand Channel, are in a zone of reversed polarity, correlated here with chron C28r.

Palaeomagnetic results from rocks and sediments show that through geologic time the Earth’s magnetic field direction has not been constant, but has periodically reversed in direction. In fact the field has reversed polarity many times. The changes in polarity, when correlated to a radiometric or biostratigraphic time scale form a magnetic polarity time scale MPTS. When sediments are deposited, the direction of the magnetic field vector at that time can be recorded by the small amounts of magnetic minerals present in the sediments.
By this process, the reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field are recorded in sedimentary sequences. Sampling a sequence of rocks, and subsequent measurement of their palaeomagnetic record, enables chronostratigraphic dating of these rocks by comparison with the MPTS. Local correlation to adjacent cores can also be performed, if a clear match to the MPTS is not possible. Samples from boreholes provide an inclination measurement but not a declination measurement unless the core is oriented , because of core section rotation during the coring process.
Sediments older than the Pleistocene rarely contain a perfectly preserved magnetic record of the Earth’s magnetic field, so that palaeomagnetists apply ‘cleaning techniques’ demagnetization to the sediment magnetization. This serves two purposes:. The application of the demagnetization techniques to the rock samples is a fundamental part of the dating procedure, since it is by this means that the fidelity of the rocks’ magnetic record is examined and interpreted. Other information on the burial and diagenetic history also play a part in the interpretation process.
The type of samples used in palaeomagnetic studies are 25mm diameter drill plugs cut from cores, with the up-core direction marked on the drill plug. The sampling intervals are located to take account of a independent means of dating, and b bedding dips for structural correction.
The Neogene succession of the Aktau Mountains in the Ili Basin, southeast Kazakhstan, is a terrestrial archive well suited for researching the role of Central Asia in Miocene climate evolution. We present an integrated approach for dating the well-exposed Bastau Formation, based on magnetostratigraphy and constraints from cyclostratigraphy and biostratigraphy. Stepwise demagnetization yielded characteristic remanence directions that are consistent with those expected for the Miocene in Central Asia.
The reddish-colored alluvial floodplain deposits and gray lacustrine deposits show partly complex magnetic behavior with magnetite and hematite as the main magnetic carriers, with variable demagnetization behavior and non-dipolar normal and reverse polarity directions. The observed magnetic properties are best explained by depositional variability and magneto-mineralogical alteration effects of both dissolution and neo-formation of magnetite, including significant secondary magnetization.
The mean of reverse polarity directions is flatter than the expected Middle Miocene Earth magnetic field, which is an indicator for the existence of inclination shallowing that supports a primary origin.
A magnetostratigraphic zonation allows dividing the stratigraphic record into time slices which can be correlated worldwide. Magnetostratigraphic.
Shipboard paleomagnetism was investigated mainly to determine directions of remanence components. Routine measurements were conducted on archive section halves with stepwise alternating field AF demagnetization. Discrete cube and minicore samples were taken from selected working-half sections and measured with stepwise AF and thermal demagnetization. These data were used for core orientation and magnetostratigraphic dating.
Ocean drilling cores generally carry secondary overprint remanence components. Common overprints for ocean drilling cores include natural viscous remanence and a steep downward-pointing component attributed to the drill string. To separate overprints from the characteristic remanence ChRM , stepwise demagnetization was performed, as described below.
Measurements of archive halves were conducted using the SRM for Section software version 1.
