Revisiting the Paleomagnetic Reversal Test: A Bayesian Hypothesis Testing Framework for a Common Mean Direction

Heslop, David; Roberts, Andrew


For over 60 years a suite of field tests has provided paleomagnetists with a means to evaluate the timing of magnetic remanence acquisition and subsequent remanence stability. These tests are crucial for detecting potential overprinting by secondary remanences and for assessing the fidelity of the geological information carried by paleomagnetic signals. The reversal test was developed to detect secondary remanent magnetizations that could potentially bias paleomagnetic reconstructions. More...[Show more]
