Paleomagnetic Services

at the University of Alberta

Paleomagnetic services for industry and research groups include


*     Magnetostratigraphy


Zhang, R., Kravchinsky, V.A., Yue, L. Link between Global Cooling and Mammalian Transformation across the Eocene-Oligocene Boundary in the Continental Interior of Asia. International Journal of Earth Sciences.

Egbobawaye, E.I., Kravchinsky, V.A., Zonneveld, J.-P., Gingras, M.K., Magnetostratigraphy Dating and Correlation of the Lower Doig and Upper Montney Formations (Lower Triassic), Northeastern British Columbia, Western Canada. Recovery 2011 CSPG CSEG CWLS Convention. Download here.

*     Cyclostratigraphy using advanced techniques developed in the lab


*     Paleomagnetic dating of igneous rocks and sediments


Hnatyshin, D., Kravchinsky, V.A. Paleomagnetic dating: Methods, MATLAB software, example. Tectonophysics 630, 103112, 2014.

Kravchinsky, V.A., Eccles, D.R., Zhang, R., Cannon, M. Paleomagnetic Dating of the Northern Alberta Kimberlites. Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences 46, 231245, 2009.

*     Paleomagnetic core re-orientation and core correlation


*     Determining of the paleocurrent/flow direction in the sediments using anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility



*     Magnetoenvironmental studies (magnetic property measurements of sediment cores, natural outcrops and modern soils or surface samples from polluted basins or areas often show that concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) and a number of heavy metals (Pb, As, Ni, Cu, Cr, Zn, Cd, Fe) are strongly correlated with magnetic susceptibility, magnetic mineralogy and grain size parameters)


*     Measuring of the rock-magnetic parameters.
