Palaeomagnetism: Principles and Applications in Geology, The magnetization of rocks is, in fact, one of the earliest of the true sciences, but we are still not in a position to answer many of the problems posed. Consequently some of the examples given of applications are, essentially, state-of-the-art comments, rather than being a review as Cited by: Paleomagnetic study of the Coldwell Complex indicates that the apparent asymmetry of geomagnetic reversal, recorded by many Keweenawan rocks is an artifact due to missing paleomagnetic record Author: H.
