Lisa Tauxe (Paleomagnetist, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, USA) measures the remanent magnetism imparted on sediments by the Earth’s magnetic field.

Here Lisa prepares to extract a paleomagnetic cube sample by pounding a metal tool into the working half. (Credit: Elizabeth Griffith & IODP) [Photo ID: exp355_071]
