Post-depositional remanent magnetization lock-in and the location of the Matuyama-Brunhes geomagnetic reversal boundary in marine and Chinese loess sequences

Liu, Q.S; Roberts, Andrew; Rohling, Eelco J.; Zhu, Rixiang; Sun, Youbin


Bioturbation disturbs detrital magnetic particles after deposition, so accurate recording of the ancient geomagnetic field in bioturbated sediments is widely attributed to acquisition of a post-depositional remanent magnetization (PDRM) whereby the geomagnetic field exerts a torque on a magnetic particle and aligns it with the field after the final mixing event experienced by the particle. The relationship between the Matuyama-Brunhes boundary (MBB) and oxygen isotope age tie points in marine...[Show more]
