Lab

The UWM Paleomagnetic Lab is located in Lapham Hall Room 359.  It is equipped with a 2G 755SRMS superconducting rock magnetometer which is housed in a shielded room built by Lodestar Magnetics.  Equipment for standard thermal and alternating field demagnetization, paleointensity analysis, and anisotropy studies is available.  If you are interested in using the lab, please contact Julie Bowles.
