Magnetic characterisation and palaeointensity analysis of rocks from selected I-type granitic plutons
Absolute palaeointensity data are crucial to investigating the behaviour of the geomagnetic field. Long-term global palaeomagnetic databases are compiled with the aim of documenting the evolution of the geomagnetic field. However the temporal and spatial distribution remains limited, partly due to a lack of 'suitable' material in critical time windows, or poor magnetic behaviour of these rocks during experiments. Therefore it would be useful to have other potential sources of palaeointensity data in the surface rock record.
