Magnetic susceptibility (MS) is commonly measured on lake sediments and used as a proxy for clastic input and soil erosion, for correlating among cores in the same lake basin and aligning successive overlapping drives of the same core. There are several common techniques for measuring MS, each with its own advantages. Here we compare three such techniques measured on a sediment core from Lake Pepin: (a) loop-sensor MS logging on wet sediment of the intact core; (b) point-sensor MS logging on wet sediment of a split (lengthwise) core; and (c) discrete MS measurements of dried subsamples using a susceptibility...
