This book is a truth blitzkrieg, a very upsetting one evidently, but a truth nevertheless: "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed.

Environmental magnetism book, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." Arthur Schopenhauer If you're looking to discover the truth about magnetism then you've come to the right book.

In environmental magnetism, the properties of magnetic minerals are used as proxy parameters for many purposes. Examples are paleoclimate analysis, paleoceanographic studies, provenance studies of sediments, studies of anthropogenically-induced pollution, and archeological investigations.

Mineral-magnetic techniques are sensitive, require little sample preparation, are rapid, Cited by: This book offers a collection of papers presented in the International Conference on Geomagnetism, Paleomagnetism and Rock Magnetism held in Kazan (Russia) in October It is aobut recent advances in Rock magnetism, environmental magnetism and paleomagnetism.

Environmental magnetism has grown considerably since the mid s and now contributes to research in the geosciences and in branches of physics, chemistry, and biology and environmental science, including research on climate change, pollution, iron biomineralization, and depositional and diagenetic processes in sediments to name a few.

Environmental magnetism was first identified as a distinct field in and was introduced to a wider audience by the book Environmental Magnetism in Since then it has grown rapidly, finding application in and making major contributions to a range of diverse fields, especially paleoclimate, sedimentology, paleoceanography.
