How does Chinese loess become magnetized?

Xiang, Zhao; Roberts, Andrew


Despite nearly three decades of paleomagnetic research on the extensive Chinese loess deposits, a convincing explanation has yet to be developed for how Chinese loess becomes magnetized. To address this problem, we conducted re-deposition experiments using weakly consolidated Holocene Chinese loess that was disaggregated in the laboratory, and compare our results with published paleomagnetic data. We simulated a depositional remanent magnetization (DRM) associated with dry deposition of eolian...[Show more]
