Resource Matrix The Earth's Magnetic Field
Some new results of archaeomagnetic research on the baked earth specimens from Jiangzhai relic of neolithic age are reported in this paper. The direction of the geo-magnetic field at about 3900 B.C. in Lingtong region where this relic is located was determined. The position of the virtual geomagnetic pole for this period were deduced according to the geocentric dipole model. The paleo-intensity was determined by using the Thellier method. The virtual dipole moment (VDM) and the corresponding reduced dipole moment (RDM) were also calculated for this epoch.
