Magnetostratigraphy of Equatorial Pacific Site 503 Hydraulic Piston Cores

Kent, Dennis V.; Spariosu, Dann J.

The paleomagnetic measurement procedure at Site 503 was similar to that described for Site 502 (See preceding chapter). Each core section was measured with the longcore spinner magnetometer at 10-cm intervals. In addition, one or more discrete samples were taken from each core section for measurement of the total magnetic vector and its stability against progressive AF demagnetization. There were noteworthy differences in conditions at Site 503, however, that affected the quality and interpretation of the magnetic data and require comment.
