The recent study of this problem () on lavas from Mamainse Point shows that the geomagnetic reversal asymmetry observed in rocks of Keweenawan age is an artifact of the rapid motion of North America during this time.The other study by Kern et al, (2012) on rocks of the alkaline Coldwell Complex (Ontario, Canada) also suggests no asymmetry in geomagnetic reversal during Keweenawan time.The paleomagnetism of rocks of the ~1.1 billion year old North American Midcontinent Rift have been intensively studied since early 1960s (for example, see a review in Halls and Pesonen, 1982).

This record is preserved by many rocks from the time of their formation.

The paleomagnetic data have played an instrumental role in deciphering the history of our planet including a decisive evidence for continental drift and global plate tectonics.

The data have also been crucial for better understanding the problems of regional and local tectonics, geodynamics, and thermal history of our planet.

This allows us to predict the direction of the magnetic field at any location on Earth’s surface using the fundamental equations of a dipole field.

This equation gives a direct relation between magnetic inclination and geographic latitude at the point of observation. a magnetic compass which points north will now point south and vice versa) and these reversals are symmetrical (i.e.

Scientists studied the magnetic signatures of the rocks on the ocean floor and noticed some recorded opposite directions for magnetic field lines even though they were side by side.
