Dynamos, Domains, and Paleomagnetic Poles



[1] Earth's and Planetary Interiors: Observation and Numerical Models of Paleomagnetic and Planetary Magnetism; Beijing, China, 7–11 July 2010; The second international Beijing Earth and Planetary Interior Symposium (BEPIS;http://www.paleomag.net/meeting) was held at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), just down the road from the Bird's Nest and other iconic structures of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The symposium was organized by Rixiang Zhu (CAS, Beijing, China) and Keke Zhang (Exeter University, Exeter, UK) and brought together more than 100 scientists, including 30 graduate students from 10 countries. Thirty-nine invited talks were organized along three major themes: planetary dynamos, paleomagnetism, and mineral magnetism. The talks were held in alternating and sometimes closely interleaved sessions and were supported by 40 poster presentations.
