MagIC Search Interface
Browse and Contribute to the MagIC Database

This search interface provides access to paleomagnetic and rock-magnetic data from a broad range of studies. Data range from individual measurements to specimen, sample or site level results, and include a wide variety of derived parameters or associated rock magnetic measurements. Existing data can be viewed and saved in several formats.

  • We invite you to attend the 2017 MagIC Workshop from the 24th to the 27th of January, 2017 hosted at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. Registration is now open. Two full days of talks will be followed by a day of working with the MagIC database and a one day hackathon of the PmagPy paleomagnetic software suite. Feel free to come for just the talks or stay for the whole event. Present your own research at a poster session that will be held on the evening of the 24th. Discounted hotel reservations are available. See the workshop website for the speaker schedule and all the other details. Students and others who wish to learn how to upload data into the MagIC database are especially encouraged to attend the workshop.

  • Follow the G-056 Expedition as we travel to McMurdo Station in Antarctica to go on daily excursions to collect samples from 132 ancient lava flows of the Mount Erebus volcanic province that recorded the magnetic field intensity during their cooling from about 1000 ¿C to near-freezing. The Erebus volcanic province was formed over the last 5 million years and determining the paleointensity over that time will help us understand the processes that cause the magnetic field to change.

  • 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.).
