of Middle Ordovician carbonate sequence, Vaivara Sinimaed area, northeast Estonia, Baltica.
He said that they have reviewed these and combined them with the new figures from palaeomagnetism
in order to expand upon the chronology of this level TD6 of the Gran Dolina and the fossils it contains.
The team dated the archaeological remains using palaeomagnetism
, a technique that identifies the fossilized direction of the Earths magnetic field in sediments, the findings of which are published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science journal.
You will learn a huge amount about how palaeomagnetism
allows us to reconstruct the swings in the Earth's magnetic field, about how the decay of potassium into argon in mica grains plays a starring role in charting geological chronologies, and about how clues in the rocks of Italy help to shore up the theory that, at the end of the Cretaceous period, a mighty meteorite or comet smashed into the Yucatan Peninsula and wiped out the dinosaurs.
The sequence of kiln technology development at Si Satchanalai has been fairly well established through a combination of radiocarbon and thermoluminescence dating, palaeomagnetism
and stratigraphic analysis (Barbetti and Hein, 1989).

Herries dated the archaeological remains using palaeomagnetism
