Magnetization Processes in Sediments

10 April 1990
This special section of the Journal of Geophysical Research is a collection of 16 papers that address recent advances in our understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological processes which affect the acquisition and alteration of the NRM in sediments. The issue is an outgrowth of a special symposium on magnetization processes in sediments that was convened at the 1987 Spring AGU Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.

Honoring Sir Edward Bullard

10 December 1981
This volume of the Journal of Geophysical Research is in commemoration of Sir Edward Crisp Bullard, who died on April 3, 1980, at the age of 72.


28 February 1985
It is now over 4 years since the Magsat spacecraft reentered the earth's atmosphere. By almost any measure the project has been a success: launch was within budget and on time; the data acquired exceeded prelaunch quality requirements even though the instrumentation encountered some problems; with the publication of this issue, the number of related scientific papers is near 100.

Norman Watkins Memorial

10 July 1980
Norman D. Watkins' career in geophysics spanned some of the most exciting years hi the history of the field. He was born in England at Sunbury-on-Thames on February 15, 1934.

Tribute to Allan Cox

10 October 1988
During the summer of 1951 Allan Cox, then a 25-year-old chemistry major at the University of California, Berkeley, became curious about geology and worked as a geology field assistant to Clyde Wahrhaftig.

Rock Magnetism: Fundamentals and Frontiers

1 August 2007
This special section is based on the session “Rock Magnetism: Fundamentals and Frontiers” held at the 2005 AGU Fall Meeting. The section is intended to be both a collective view of fundamental and frontier research in rock magnetism and its applications to Earth and planetary sciences, and a retirement tribute to Professor David Dunlop, who has made profound contributions to the field.
