Recent Advances in Geo-, Paleo- and Rock-Magnetism

Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to the thematic series on Recent Advances in Geo-, Paleo- and Rock-Magnetism. 

This special issue is based on Session S-EM18 "General Contributions in Geomagnetism, Paleomagnetism, and Rock magnetism" held during the Japan Geoscience Union – American Geophysical Union (JpGU-AGU) 2017 Meeting (20 – 25 May in Chiba, Japan). Vast and accelerating developments seen in current Earth science investigations could not be realized without knowledge of Earth's magnetic field. Recent advances in rock magnetism have facilitated new findings in paleomagnetism. This issue focuses especially on rock magnetism and paleomagnetism as a means of understanding the past variation of Earth’s magnetic field. We welcome contributions related to the geodynamo, present and past geomagnetic behavior, fundamental rock magnetic properties, and paleoclimatic change and tectonic processes revealed by magnetic methods. We also encourage contributions related to new methods, software and instruments that are useful for the above mentioned studies.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Geomagnetism
  • Paleomagnetism
  • Rock magnetism
  • Archeomagnetism
  • Planetary magnetism   

Submission Instructions

Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for Earth, Planets and Space. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Earth, Planets and Space submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the appropriate thematic series in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series on Modeling Complexity in  Complex Adaptive Communication Networks and Environments. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.
