Main Article Content
Flat-bedded, shallow water, marine limestones interlayered with marls are well exposed in Franconia and Swabia, Southern Germany. The Upper Jurassic sediments sampled have been dated in detail palaeontologically, and cover the interval from middle Lower Oxfordian to middle Lower Kimmeridgian. Bed by bed sampling of sections at 11 localities throughout a thickness of more than 130 m yielded about 400 samples (1100 specimens) for palaeomagnetic analysis. The NRM intensities appear to correlate with the clay content and averaged 2 x 10–7 Gauss. Progressive alternating field demagnetization of each specimen was used to isolate the direction of the characteristic remanence, whose mean intensity averaged 5 x 10–8 Gauss. Only normally magnetized rocks are found in the lower part of the section, but distinct zones of normal and reversed polarity are found in the upper part (middle Lower Kimmeridgian) in both regions of investigation. The polarity sequence is tentatively correlated with the ocean floor Mesozoic magnetic anomaly sequence. The data yield a reliable estimate of a Late Jurassic palaeomagnetic pole position for stable Europe.

a. Authors share the copyright with this journal in equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author), and grant the journal right of first publication, with the work after publication simultaneously licensed under Creative Commons Attribution License CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.
b. Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal, and a reference to this copyright notice.
c. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) during the submission process, as this can lead to productive exchanges and earlier and greater citation of published work and better sales of the copyright.
Authors retain copyright and grant the Journal of Geophysics right of first publication, with the work three years after publication simultaneously licensed under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 License that allows others to share the work (with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal), except for commercial purposes and for creating derivatives.
Authors can enter into separate, additional, but non-commercial contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository, but not publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal.

This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording the authors' intellectual property absolute worldwide protection.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature that resell copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore, all the proceeds from reselling copyright to third parties get shared to equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right that lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author, on behalf of all co-authors, grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
