  • The paleomagnetic demagnetization analysis tool in the PmagPy software suite ( has been updated by Kevin Gaastra in Nick Swanson-Hysell's research group. The program can now handle multiple demag components. Instructions on how to install PmagPy can be found here.

  • A new version (version 2) of the VARIFORC processing software is now available for download.

    This release comes with several application examples and significant improvements (better smoothing performance and clearer overview, robust handling of FORC data associated with very rectangular hysteresis loops, mean field correction, plots of diagrams with normalized vertical profiles, etc.).

  • The Magnetics Information Consortium (MagIC) continues its global seminar series in 2015. The seminar will be held on select Mondays each month at 8am Pacific Time. This early start in Pacific Time will allow those in Europe to join at a reasonable hour. In the seminar a presentation of a recent paper will be given using Adobe Connect. Ample time will be given to discussion during and after the presentation. Each seminar will have a presenter as coordinated by the MagIC team. Please visit the MagIC seminar website for the seminar schedule, recordings of past seminars, and other details.
