A Bayesian Approach to the Paleomagnetic Conglomerate Test

Heslop, David; Roberts, Andrew P.


The conglomerate test has served the paleomagnetic community for over 60 years as a means to detect remagnetizations. The test states that if a suite of clasts within a bed have uniformly random paleomagnetic directions, then the conglomerate cannot have experienced a pervasive event that remagnetized the clasts in the same direction. The current form of the conglomerate test is based on null hypothesis testing, which results in a binary “pass” (uniformly random directions) or “fail” (nonrandom...[Show more]
