      Paleomagnetic data are useful in many applications in Earth Science from determining paleocurrent directions to analyzing the long-term behavior of the geomagnetic field. In this book, an attempt has been made to draw together the various principles and practices within paleomagnetism in a consistent and up-to-date manner. It includes many practical examples that illustrate various. Start studying Env. Geology Ch 3. Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

Introduction. One of the most interesting results obtained in the last two decades in the study of crustal deformation has been the recognition that large regions of continental crust undergo rotations about vertical axis during deformation.

Proof of such rotations has come through the paleomagnetic studies, which reveal rotations when paleomagnetic declinations within the deforming region arc compared with those found in coeval rocks in the stable regions outside the deforming.

Paleomagnetic Rotation Constraints on the Deformation of the Northern Qaidam Marginal Thrust Belt and Implications for Strike‐Slip Faulting Along the Altyn Tagh Fault. Bingshuai Li. School of Earth Sciences, East China University of Technology, Nanchang, by: 3. The observed movement on faults within a wide zone of continental deformation does not in general determine the rotation rate of the rigid blocks bounded by the faults.

Only if an a priori model for the deformation is assumed can the fault movements be related to observations of paleomagnetic rotations.

Even when such a model is valid, the faulting determines the block rotations relative to the boundaries of the zone, whereas the paleomagnetic Cited by: Harbert, William () [Review of "Paleomagnetic rotations and continental deformation" by Catherine Kissel and Carlo Laj (eds.)]. Geophysics, - ISSN These paleomagnetic observations coincided with the development of models describing large rotations in regions of continental deformation which all originated from the recognition that continents, unlike the oceans, deform in a widespread, diffuse way (McKenzie and Jackson, ; Lamb, ).

Although first-order agreement of paleomagnetic directions between south China and Siberia shows that terranes between them were sutured by Cretaceous times, deformation by ongoing tectonism has continued and been especially focused near the continental margin of eastern Asia.

To help evaluate differential rotations and relate them to regional strike-slip and extensional tectonic Cited by: Paleomagnetism and Continental Drift Abraham Ortelius ( – ) suggested that South America and Africa had, at some time, split and separated.

Others had similar thoughts until in Alfred Wegener formalised the ideas in his initial presentation and his book The Origins of Continents and Oceans (). Few liked the idea. The opening of the Japan Sea backarc basin accompanied dextral, transtensional deformations in the NE Japan arc.

To understand the intra-arc deformation we have studied paleomagnetism in the Uetsu area, NE Japan. Among the samples collected at 70 sites for paleomagnetic measurement reliable directions were obtained at 38 ones.

This is not the time for a reappraisal of the work of German meteorologist Alfred Wegener, but it is hoped that this volume will stimulate a serious interest in a subject formerly considered by many earth scientists as already.deformation in this area was accommodated by rotations about vertical axes.

Our paleomagnetic data demonstrate that clock- wise rotation of structural blocks, in addition to extensional and strike-slip faulting, accounts for significant late Miocene to Recent deformation in this area. Rigid body rotation .
