Abstract:

Two north-eastern Australian volcanic crater lake cores have been used to obtain relative intensity estimates for the geomagnetic field. ARM imparted in a low DC bias field has been used as a normalizing parameter. The intensity fluctuations in the two lakes are in excellent agreement with each other and with south-eastern Australian archaeointensity data over their coeval time spans. This strongly suggests that the same sources are influencing the geomagnetic secular variation throughout eastern Australia at this time. The relative intensity records go back to about 14000yr BP thereby extending currently available recent Australian intensity records by some 7000 yr.
