ScopeThe present day vast developments of Earth sciences could not be realized without the knowledge of the Earth's magnetic field. This session is open to recent advances in all areas being concerned with geomagnetism, paleomagnetism, rock magnetism, and their applications to geophysical and geological issues. We welcome presentations on geodynamo, present and past geomagnetic behaviors, fundamental rock magnetic properties, and paleoclimatic changes and tectonic processes revealed by magnetic methods. We also encourage presentations on new methods, softwares and instruments that is useful for the above mentioned studies.
