8. MAGNETIC STUDIES OF SELECTED SEDIMENTS1

and Gary D. Acton4
The results of two separate magnetic investigations are discussed in this paper. The first study produced a magnetostratigra-
phy from the K/T boundary interval of Hole 1001A from the lower Nicaraguan Rise. The second investigation produced a high-
resolution Brunhes age paleomagnetic and rock-magnetic record from Hole 1002C in the Cariaco Basin.
Paleomagnetic and rock-magnetic measurements are routinely
used to provide chronological control for stratigraphic studies of
Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) sediments. In addition, rock-
magnetic studies of ODP sediments are often used to provide core
correlation, resolve glacial-interglacial cycles, and detect other types
of paleoenvironmental changes (see reviews in King and Channell,
1991; Reynolds and King, 1995).
Shipboard paleomagnetic studies of Leg 165 sediments were se-
