• WG10. Paleomagnetic laboratories

Coordination: Pedro Silva, ISEL/FCUL
Co-coordination: Eric Font, UC
Institutions: FCUL, ISEL, UC

Working group focused on the study of magnetic properties of rocks and sediments for a better understanding of geological processes.

Aims at the provision of instrumental means for the study of paleomagnetism, magnetic fabrics, rock magnetism and environmental magnetism; the acquisition of equipment to improve the analytical quality available to the academic and non/academic communities; the creation of a data repository and the increased participation in international groups.
