Abstract

RESULTS discussed here demonstrate the value of limestones in palaeomagnetic work. The fact that these rocks can apparently record secular variation provides evidence that the magnetisation is of depositional or very early diagenetic origin. Limestones may become a valuable tool in studying the ancient geomagnetic field.
