Our Research in the Palaeomagnetism and Rock Magnetism Group at the University of Oxford addresses a broad spectrum of the Earth Sciences. The laboratory was set up in the Department of Earth Sciences in 1986, and its personnel have taken a leading role in the development of new applications of the palaeomagnetic technique to solving problems in diverse areas of geology and environmental change. Current projects involve members of the Departments of Earth Sciences, Geography, as well as many UK and internationally based collaborators from diverse disciplines within academia and the commercial sector. We work in particularly close collaboration with researchers in tectonics and structural geology, sedimentology and stratigraphy, volcanology, archaeology, geodynamics, and isotope geochemistry.
