Results of experiments on plagioclase. a NRM intensity plotted as a function of IRM intensity. Horizontal and vertical dashed lines indicate the threshold for significant remanence. b Histogram of NRM intensity divided by IRM intensity. c Representative hysteresis loop after slope correction. The slope correction coefficient was + 61.4 nAm2/T. d Day plot of quartz and plagioclase grains shown with previous reports by Wakabayashi et al. (2006). Closed symbols represent results of this study. Reversed triangle indicates quartz, and circle indicates plagioclase. Opened symbols represent results of Wakabayashi et al. (2006). Triangle, circle and square indicate non-separated chips, feldspar fraction and biotite fraction, respectively. Dotted lines show the SD-MD magnetite mixture trend after Channell and McCabe (1994) and Parry (1982). e Low-temperature remanence measurements. Solid lines for ZFC measurements and dotted lines for FC measurements. f Stepwise ThD of TRM given at 50 μT compared to that of TRM1 of the whole-rock sample ITG09b-34-1 (Wakabayashi et al. 2006). Dashed lines for plagioclase grains and solid line for whole rock. Solid gray line indicates TRM value before ThD
