A Preisach method for estimating absolute paleofield intensity under the constraint of using only isothermal measurements: 2. Experimental testing

Muxworthy, Adrian R; Heslop, David; Paterson, Greig A; Michalk, Daniel


This paper reports an empirical test of a new nonheating Preisach-based protocol for determining the absolute ancient magnetic field intensity (paleointensity) using a selection of synthetic samples and a large suite of modern lavas and pyroclastic lithic samples. Generally, the Preisach paleointensity estimates compare favorably with the expected field intensities: (1) for the synthetic samples displaying single-domain-like behavior, the method returned the correct result for the known field,...[Show more]
