Detecting uniaxial single domain grains with a modified IRM technique; comment



Detecting uniaxial single domain grains with a modified IRM technique; comment



Geophysical Journal International 191.1



In a recent article, Mitra et al. (2011) propose a modified IRM technique to identify the symmetry of magnetic anisotropy in single domain particle ensembles. They apply this technique to support an earlier suggestion that single domain grains in young mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORB) exhibit multiaxial anisotropy. Here it is shown that the design of their measurement is flawed, in that they do not take into account that the outcome essentially depends on the initial demagnetization state of the sample before the experiment, and on the coercivity distribution of the sample. Because all MORB specimens measured by Mitra et al. (2011) carried their original NRM, which closely resembles a thermally demagnetized state, their measurements first of all reflect the coercivity distributions and domain states of the samples, and contain little or no information about the symmetry of the magnetic anisotropy. All arguments previously put forward in favour of a dominant uniaxial anisotropy in MORB are therefore still valid. Abstract Copyright (2012), RAS.
