Summer School of Rock Magnetism: A Community Based Program for Training the Next Generation of Paleomagnetists
Magnetic geoscience research uses sensitive, nondestructive measurements on natural materials to illuminate geomagnetic field history, tectonic processes and environmental changes. Learn more about the fundamentals and applications at the biennial Summer School in Rock Magnetism (SSRM),held at the Institute for Rock Magnetism (IRM) in Minneapolis, MN. The 10-day program is targeted at graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in rock magnetism, paleomagnetism, and associated fields. Students receive intensive instruction in rock magnetic theory and laboratory techniques. A daily schedule of lectures, hands-on laboratory measurements, and data processing will introduce students to the fundamentals of rock magnetism and paleomagnetism and the practical aspects of collecting and interpreting data responsibly. Instructors for the summer school will be primarily IRM faculty and staff.
