Paleomagnetism and paleomagnetic tectonic reconstruction within the limits of exposures of Uppercretacious granodiorites of the archipelago of Argentinian islands (the Antarctic Peninsula)

© Orlova M.I.

The direction of characteristic component of natural residual magnetization with components of direct and inverse polarity has been determined for granodiorites from exposures located within the islands Barkhany and Peterman. It has been found that rotating motions of rocks produce considerable effects upon distribution of paleomagnetic vectors within deposits. A scheme has been given, which explains turnings and displacements of blocks within the exposures of granodiorites.
