Abstract

Presented here are the results of a detailed field, analytical, and experimental study of the magnetic mineralogy and magnetic properties of rocks from Lofoten and Vesteralen, Norway, a province of deep-seated origin with associated regional magnetic and gravity anomalies. These rocks have a bulk magnetic character of surprising uniformity, with susceptibilities, hysteresis, and Curie temperatures defined solely by coarse-grained magnetite. -from Author
