Earth, Planets and Space welcomes submissions to this special issue on “High Resolution Paleomagnetic Chronology of Volcanic Eruption Sequences”.
Paleomagnetic studies offer powerful applications in volcanology, for example in establishing eruption history and for investigating volcanic processes. Volcanic rocks can provide high quality paleomagnetic data, both directional and intensity. Since volcanic activity is independent of geomagnetic field variations, this means that paleomagnetism can be used to establish temporal correlations between units and to construct chronologies of volcanic sequences that are independent of petrology or radiometric dating. Furthermore, well-established geomagnetic secular variation records and models enable high resolution paleomagnetic dating, particularly in cases where broad constraints are available from other considerations. This special issue focusses on studies in which paleomagnetism has been employed to evaluate volcanic activity and eruption processes from a chronological perspective. We also welcome fundamental research combining volcanological and paleomagnetic studies, for example the incorporation of high precision paleomagnetic data from volcanic rocks in regional secular variation records.
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission Guidelines Earth, Planets and Space.
