  1. NRMLTD,0, intensity after LTD for NRM. ARM00, intensity after LTD for ARM0. MDFA0, median destructive field of ARM0 in progressive AFD. LTDA00, LT demagnetized fraction of ARM0, expressed as (ARM0 intensity after LTD)/(ARM0 intensity before LTD) × 100. HL, HH, low (high) limit of the interval of AF steps chosen for the determination of a characteristic direction or a linear segment. D, I, MADfree, declination and inclination in the geographic coordinate system and the maximum angular deviation determined by the PCA free-floating fit (Kirschvink 1980) for the chosen intervals of data. Time, hold time at the set peak temperature (610 °C) in each heating process. The slopeA0, slopeA1, and slope values determined from all data points after LTD in each of the ARM0-ARM1 and ARM1-ARM2 diagrams. The slopeN, slopeT, slope values of the chosen linear segment in each of the NRM-TRM1* and TRM1-TRM2* diagrams. The fN, fT, NRM, and TRM1 fractions of the chosen linear NRM-TRM1* and TRM1-TRM2* segments. The rN, rT, correlation coefficients for linearity of the chosen linear segment of NRM/TRM1* and TRM1/TRM2* data points, respectively. Blab, laboratory DC field during the TRM1 and TRM2 acquisitions. Banc, API estimate
  2. “nd” denotes “not determined”. Arabic numerals with bold italic denote the values failing to meet the corresponding selection criterion. In the bottom of the table, site means and overall means of API estimates are listed
  3. The mean value with # mark is calculated from all other specimen-level estimates excluding one for specimen B2F-1-1 (3.29 μT)
