Magnetic properties of pelagic marine carbonates

Roberts, A.P.; Florindo, F.; Chang, L.; Heslop, D.; Jovane, L.; Larrasoaña, J.C.


Pelagic carbonates are deposited far from continents, usually at water depths of 3000-6000. m, at rates below 10. cm/kyr, and are a globally important sediment type. Recent advances, with recognition of widespread preservation of biogenic magnetite (the inorganic remains of magnetotactic bacteria), have fundamentally changed our understanding of the magnetic properties of pelagic carbonates. We review evidence for the magnetic minerals typically preserved in pelagic carbonates, the effects of...[Show more]
