Driving a palaeomagnetic revolution: geophysical and environmental signals from magnetic biominerals

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The fossilized remains of bacteria that create tiny magnets are responsible for much of what we know about Earth’s ancient magnetic field. How did these bacterial remnants record magnetic signals and what do they tell us about the environments in which they formed? We will address these questions with experiments that employ new techniques.
