The Matuyama-Brunhes geomagnetic reversal was continuously recorded in the massive siltstones of the Boso marine sediments in Japan with the time resolution better than 9 years. However the Boso sediments probably have the post-depositional detrital remanent magnetization (pDRM) depressing short-period variations due to the convolution of the geomagnetic field. The previous application of the deconvolution method of pDRM to the 900 year records gave the half fixing depth of 21 cm. Further application of this fixing depth to the 4100 year record clearly shows nearly 100 year variations in both of the inclination and declination.
