... by Ward et al. ( 1997 ) are not qualitatively different from ours. Thus the noise we observed is apparently intrinsic to these rocks. Most sites contain normal-polarity remanence, which is not surprising because the Nanaimo Group was deposited during the Late Cretaceous, when the field most often had...
