Short Course on Magnetic Susceptibility

Short course on magnetic susceptibility will be organized primarily for up to about 20 undergraduate and postgraduate students, attending the 14th castle Meeting on Paleo, Rock and Environmental Magnetism in Evora, Portugal. The Course will take place at the venue of the Castle Meeting (hotel M’ar De Ar Muralhas, Evora, Portugal) on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 August 2013.

Preliminary outline of the Course is as follows:

Friday, 29 August:

·         Physical principles of magnetic susceptibility

·         Geological applications

·         Temperature, frequency and amplitude dependence of magnetic susceptibility

·         Applications (temperature dependence, mineralogy and environment)

Saturday, 30 August:

·         Anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility

·         Applications (frequency and amplitude dependence)

·         Practical exercise, measurements using a set of different samples.
