Maximum depth of magnetisation of Australia, its uncertainty, and implications for Curie depth

Chopping, Richard; Kennett, Brian L.N.


The Curie depth is the depth at which the crust and uppermost mantle cease to be ferromagnetic or ferromagnetic, the main cause of crustal magnetism, due to the action of geothermal effects. One method to estimate the Curie depth for Australia is to map the base of magnetisation derived from observations of magnetic intensity. We have used a nonlinear direct sampling inverse technique to fully explore the parameter space of a fractal forward model of magnetisation. This produces an ensemble of...[Show more]
