Abstract

Granulites from southwest Lofoten, Norway, often carry intense and stable components of NRM. Coercivities in excess of 100 mT and blocking temperatures up to 580°-645°C are common. Several phases in these rocks can carry stable components of NRM. Clinopyroxenes (augite with exsolved pigeonite and orthopyroxene) usually contain abundant Fe-Ti oxides, the majority of which are too small to be studied conclusively with visible light. Additionally, these rocks typically contain coarse-grained (~100-1000 μm) exsolution intergrowths of rhombohedral Fe-Ti oxides and coarse-grained magnetite. We have studied the magnetism and mineralogy of the titanohematite and the inclusion-bearing augites in one granulite sample using TEM and magnetic experiments to understand better the remanence properties of naturally occurring Fe-Ti oxides and their relationships to silicate minerals. -from Authors
