HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO MAGNETISM

Here we present the Hitchhiker's Guide to Magnetism written by Bruce M. Moskowitz for the Environmental Magnetism Workshop held 5-8 June 1991 at the Institute for Rock Magnetism. It is a great introduction to rock magnetism and something we have encouraged many students new to the field to read. Below are links to the .html version in several sections with some links to help you navigate through or jump to certain sections as you prefer. We also include a .pdf version. Both versions can be printed, however, if you print the .html version, I recommend to print it in landscape mode.
