Keywords:

  • post-depositional remanent magnetization;
  • early DRM re-deposition experiments and large inclination errors;
  • emergence of the concept of a pDRM;
  • bioturbation, for sediments to acquire accurate pDRM;
  • simplest explanations, a pDRM as banking on lithology;
  • ‘lock-in depth’ for a pDRM, from laboratory experiments;
  • evidence of pDRM in natural sediments;
  • lock-in depth of paleomagnetic, as BMM or geomagnetic excursion;
