Magnetic stratigraphy / Магнитостратиграфия

Magnetic polarity stratigraphy, the stratigraphic record of polarity reversals in rocks and sediments, is now thoroughly integrated into biostratigraphy and chemostratigraphy. For Late Mesozoic to Quaternary times, the geomagnetic polarity record is central to the construction of geologic time scales, linking biostratigraphies, isotope stratigraphies, and absolute ages.

The application of magnetic stratigraphy in geologic investigations is now commonplace; however, the use of magnetic stratigraphy as a correlation tool in sediments and lava flows has developed only in the past 35 years. As recently as the mid-1960s, magnetic polarity stratigraphy dealt with only the last 3 My of Earth history; today, a fairly well-resolved magnetic polarity sequence has been documented back to 300 My before present. An increasing number of scientists in allied fields now use and apply magnetic stratigraphy. This book is aimed at this expanding practitioner base, providing information about the principles of magnetostratigraphy and the present state of our knowledge concerning correlations among the various (biostratigraphic, chemostratigraphic, magnetostratigraphic, and numerical) facets of geologic time <...>
