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.

A Bartington MS2 device is used to determine the magnetization of sediment and solids. Sediment cores (sensor MS2C) and single samples with defined volume can be analyzed (sensor MS2B).
AWI - Alfred Wegener Institute
The sedimentology lab at the Permafrost Research section aims to study the transport and accumulation processes of permafrost-related deposits and classify sediment sequences in general. Therefore, the following parameters are investigated: sediment structure description, grain-size distribution and mass specific magnetic susceptibility.
