The Laboratory for Earth Magnetism in Time and Space deals with magnetostratigraphic dating of paleoclimate archive sand the reconstruction of geomagnetic field variation in the geological past. Therefore, intensity and directions of sedimentary magnetizations are determined. Further, magnetic minerals are characterized by their physical properties, such as coercivity, Curie temperature, grain size, and concentration, as well as by their chemical composition and preservation status.
