The IRM Quarterly is published four times each year. The Quarterly includes articles on new instruments, techniques, meeting reports and historical figures. In addition, Visiting Fellows provide a short description of the recent work at the IRM. A list of recent abstracts in the rock-magnetic literature is also maintained for each issue, and any news of interest to rock magnetists is made available. To receive a hard copy of the IRM Quarterly, or to receive an e-mail anouncement of each issue, contact Peter Solheid (peat@...) to place you on our mailing list. Anouncements of new issues can also be received by following us on Facebook. Links to PDFs of each issue are below.
