Department of Earth Science

Paleomagnetic laboratory

The paleomagnetic laboratory is equipped with a full range of instruments for paleomagnetic and mineral-magnetic analysis.


Paleo- mineral magnetism is an integral part of many geosciences. In order to comply with the multi-disciplinary nature of research-projects on all educational levels at the Department, most instruments are located in the ‘Measurement Saloon'. Here students and researchers have easy access and may get the necessary instructions to operate instruments.

The laboratory was established in 1960's and has been continuously expanding its number and types of instruments.

The laboratory with its 12m2 low-field room is located in a nearby building (Allegt. 70).
