Welcome to the Paleomagnetics Laboratory at The University of Texas at Austin.   Here is where you can learn about what a scientist studying the magnetic field of ancient rocks does in the laboratory and what kind of results he or she can expect. There are several aspects to our laboratory that make it different from others. One is our automatic handler system created at California Institute of Technology and adapted for our needs. Scientists and students can keep up with changes to our system by keeping in touch with the other 6 similar systems in the world and RAPID Consortium
