Abstract

Recent work on magnetic properties of limestones has demonstrated that the mineral siderite can be very important in paleomagnetism, for two reasons. First, oxidation of siderite produces secondary (daughter) magnetic minerals either before, during, or after sampling. Second, siderite in weakly magnetized rocks may indicate the potential for successful paleomagnetic results. -from Authors
