Cosmogenic 10Be and paleomagnetic records of the Earth’s magnetic field history : news and views. »

11.30am 20 August 2019

Cosmogenic Be records provide a second technique for determining the strength of Earth's magnetic field. Intercomparison of results from Be analysis and traditional measurement of paleomagnetic intensity provide insights into the accuracy of the geomagnetic record and the evolution of Earth's magnetic field.
