Research of Linda Garming

Diagenetic processes and the fate of the palaeomagnetic signal in marine sediments 

Plausible magnetic polarity information has often been retained in considerably altered sedimentary assemblages of magnetic minerals. The intensity information in such sediments, however, is doubtful. The project involves research into the mechanisms which permit oxic magnetic carriers to ‘survive’ reductive diagenesis. An integrated geochemical and mineral magnetic approach is aiming at developing models that describe and explain reaction kinetics and past redox conditions.
