Demonstrating that continents had drifted: Paleomagnetic measurements at the Australian National University 1952-1964
Over fifty years ago, the new Department of Geophysics of the Australian National University in Canberra pursued research in paleomagnetism which was to be fundamental to the major developments in Earth Sciences now known as the plate tectonics revolution. In the setting of some then unexplained phenomena such as reversely magnetized rocks, and slightly in advance of fundamental developments in the dating of rocks using radioactive decay schemes of naturally-occurring isotopes, a team led by...[Show more]
