Paleomagnetism, Volume 73, Second Edition: Continents and Oceans (International Geophysics)

Paleomagnetism, Volume 73, Second Edition: Continents and Oceans (International Geophysics)

Paleomagnetism is the study of the fossil magnetism in rocks. It has been paramount in determining that the continents have drifted over the surface of the Earth throughout geological time. The fossil magnetism preserved in the ocean floor has demonstrated how continental drift takes place through the process of sea-floor spreading. The methods and techniques […]
