Complex polarity pattern at the former Plio-Pleistocene global stratotype section at Vrica (Italy): Remagnetization by magnetic iron sulphides

Roberts, Andrew; Florindo, Fabio; Larrasoana, Juan C; O'Regan, Matthew A; Xiang, Zhao


The Vrica section in Calabria, southern Italy, was the global stratotype for the Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary until this boundary was redefined in 2009. Several paleomagnetic investigations have been carried out at Vrica to determine the age of the formerly defined Pliocene-Pleistocene boundary, which was a key calibration point for the astronomical polarity timescale (APTS). Each study has documented a complex polarity pattern at and above the top of the Olduvai subchron and in relation to...[Show more]
