Abstract

The sampling of nonlithified diamictons for magnetic analyses (anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility and paleomagnetic remanence) has been restricted to samples that are either massive, clay-rich sediments, or fine-grained ones with very low pebble contents. A new method was developed that produced standard-sized 2 × 2 × 2 cm cubes of sediment from a laminated, clay-poor diamicton from southern Denmark. The sampling procedure did not affect the sample or its magnetic characteristics in any observable manner.
