Main Article Content
The anisotropy of magnetic low-field susceptibility in the Triassic Plattensandstein formation (Upper Buntsandstein) from northern Bavaria has a typical sedimentary fabric. The anisotropy ellipsoids are strongly oblate with minimum susceptibility axes normal to sedimentary bedding. The directions of the maximum susceptibility axes are consistent with the NNE-NE-trending general sediment transport direction that is derived from geological field observations of cross-bedding structures in the sandstones. However, the very small intensity differences between maximum and intermediate susceptibility require extremely sensitive measurement techniques. Comparative measurements were made with a spinner magnetometer, a cryogenic magnetometer and a susceptibility bridge. Directionally, the most consistent results were obtained with the spinner magnetometer after it was stabilized by means of a low-pass active filter. The directional consistency of the anisotropy principal axes can be improved further by annealing the sandstones at 750° C in air. During this treatment a strongly magnetic, low-coercivity mineral phase - probably magnetite - is formed which enhances the degree of magnetic anisotropy as well as the bulk susceptibility. Low temperature measurements indicate that, in the natural unheated state, paramagnetic minerals contribute substantially to the low-field susceptibility of the sandstones at room temperature.

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...)
