Palaeomagnetism is a record of the Earth’s past magnetic field. When lava is erupted at the surface, magnetic minerals, such as iron, in the lava align parallel with the Earth’s magnetic field. The magnetic minerals have a declination that points towards the magnetic north pole and an inclination related directly to latitude (at the equator. Paleomagnetism (or palaeomagnetism in the United Kingdom) is the study of the record of the Earth's magnetic field in rocks, sediment, or archeological materials. Certain minerals in rocks lock-in a record of the direction and intensity of the magnetic field when they form. This record provides information on the past behavior of Earth's magnetic field and the past location of tectonic .

Scientists can study the history of Earth’s magnetic field by using Earth’s rocks as records. Paleomagnetism is the study of magnetic rocks and sediments to record the history of the magnetic field. Some rocks and materials contain minerals that respond to the magnetic field. So, when rocks form, the minerals align with the magnetic field preserving its position. Landscape formation on Cyprus is controlled by processes directly linked to the uplift and unroofing of the Troodos ophiolite complex since mainly early Miocene times. Understanding the Cited by: 7.

Learn about Author Central. D Cited by: The main problem in Mediterranean studies is to distinguish between tectonic features of superfisical origin and those reflecting fundamental changes. Cited by: Palaeomagnetism and archaeomagnetism are fascinating specialized studies because they are applicable to such a wide range of problems in geology, archaeology and geophysics.
They can also be undertaken cheaply, when compared with most other geophysical techniques, and, at. In book: Palaeomagnetism and Tectonics of the Mediterranean Region, Chapter: Alternative tectonic models for the Late Palaeozoic-Early Tertiary development of Tethys in the Eastern Mediterranean.
