Join us for this School of Earth and Environmental Sciences research seminar with guest speaker Joshua F Einsle.
Traditional paleomagnetism focuses on the measurement and characterisation of ensemble magnetic properties found in bulk macroscopic samples. Owing to the development of high-sensitivity magnetometers and novel synchrotron techniques, a new paradigm in paleomagnetic studies is currently being established which allows for the study of rare and unique samples from the earliest eras of the earth’s and the solar system’s history.
In these samples the critical questions revolve around the ability to establish a direct link between the nanostructural properties (composition, chemical ordering and distribution of magnetic inclusions) and the magnetic signal measured.
This talk will explore how advanced microscopy techniques provide for a multiscale understanding of these new systems and allows for exploration into the fundamental rock magnetic behaviour.
Tea and coffee will be available in the lobby from 12.30.
