Abstract
A high-resolution paleomagnetic record for part of the Matuyama chron (0.7^2.1 Ma) is reported for Ocean Drilling
Program Site 1101 (Leg 178), off the Antarctic Peninsula Pacific margin. A rock-magnetic investigation of 62 discrete
samples revealed that the natural remanent magnetization (NRM) is carried by pseudo-single domain magnetite.
Progressive alternating field demagnetization of 83 m of U-channels provided a polarity stratigraphy down to the
Olduvai subchron. Two geomagnetic events preceding the Jaramillo subchron were identified, including the Cobb
