Anomalous magnetic fabric in sediments which record an apparent geomagnetic field excursion 
Letter to the Editor
THE discussions of late Quaternary magnetic stratigraphy have presented a complex variety of magnetic events and excursions, many with differing degrees of reliability1,2. Several authors1-4 have warned against this 'reinforcement syndrome' in interpreting unconfirmed palaeomagnetic results. In support of these admonitions, we report here that some apparent geomagnetic field excursions recorded in sediments may not represent short-term changes in the Earth's magnetic field. © 1978 Nature Publishing Group.
