Paleomagnetism of Sedimentary Rocks: Process and Interpretation


Paleomagnetism of Sedimentary Rocks: Process and  Interpretation Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book describes the paleomagnetism of sediments and sedimentary rocks, how sediments and sedimentary rocks become magnetized, and how the physical and chemical processes involved can affect the accuracy of paleomagnetism.

Topics covered include depositional and post-depositional remanence acquisition, the detection and correction of compaction-caused inclination shallowing, reduction diagenesis of magnetic minerals, chemical remagnetization, and rotation of remanence by grain-scale rock strain. The book also has a chapter on environmental paleomagnetism, including examples of the new technique of high-resolution rock magnetic cyclostratigraphy and its application to sedimentary sequences.

By emphasising the accuracy of sedimentary paleomagnetism and the magnitude of post-depositional processes that can affect it, the book will be invaluable in the geologic interpretation of sedimentary paleomagnetic data.

Paleomagnetism of Sedimentary Rocks will be welcomed by paleomagnetists, students of paleomagnetism and all Earth scientists who use sedimentary paleomagnetic data in their research.

About the Author

Ken Kodama is Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Lehigh University. He has taught Earth sciences and conducted paleomagnetic and rock magnetic research with his students at Lehigh for the past 34 years. In his time away from paleomagnetism he enjoys playing music.
