On the statistical analysis of the rock magnetic S-ratio

Heslop, David


The S-ratio is a rock magnetic parameter employed to provide a relative measure of the contributions of low and high coercivity material to a sample's saturation isothermal remanent magnetization (SIRM). The current form of expressing the S-ratio involves reporting a single value that represents the relative contribution of the low coercivity material, such as magnetite, to the overall SIRM. Expressing the S-ratio in this form is somewhat misleading, suggesting that the derived values are real...[Show more]
