Related to Remanent magnetization: saturation magnetization, induced magnetization


The magnetic induction that remains in a material after removal of the magnetizing field.

[From Middle English remanent, remaining, from Latin remanēns, remanent-, present participle of remanēre, to remain; see remain.]

rem′a·nent adj.


(General Physics) physics the ability of a material to retain magnetization, equal to the magnetic flux density of the material after the removal of the magnetizing field. Also called: retentivity
[C17: from Latin remanēre to stay behind, remain]


(ˈrɛm ə nəns)

the magnetic flux that remains in a magnetic circuit after an applied magnetomotive force has been removed.

The crust formed in the period before the field was extinguished acquired a magnetization (remanent + induced) and nowadays the magnetic field measured in orbit responds to the remanent magnetization of the crust.
Much has been learned for the past 30 years from records of paleointensity relying on natural remanent magnetization of sediments and lava flows, but large uncertainties persist and major features of the field remain poorly documented, pointing out the limits of the approach.
natural remanent magnetization (NRM)) was measured using either the AGICO JR-6A spinner magnetometer or 2G Superconducting Rock Magnetometer 755 (SQUID), and the magnetic susceptibility ([chi]) was checked with the AGICO KLF-4A Automatic Magnetic Susceptibility Meter.

Scatter plots of initial magnetic susceptibility (MS) versus saturation isothermal remanent magnetization (SIRM) and natural remanent magnetization (NRM) reveal two data trends that categorize the three sets of samples into two main groups, namely heterogeneous and standarized/unknown.
On Earth remanent magnetization most commonly occurs when hot volcanic rocks become cool enough to reach the Curie point, the temperature at which the signature of the magnetic field at that time is "frozen in.
