Brief description

This version of the IAGA (International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy) Global Palaeomagnetic Database contains 9259 paleomagnetic poles from 7513 rock units published in 3673 articles up to December 2004 inclusive.

This version has just been also completely updated using the latest International Stratigraphic Chart published by the International Commision on Stratigraphy on their website (www.stratigraphy.org). This new timescale is significantly different from the timescale which has been used in the database for the past decade.

All entries in the database based on biostratigraphic ages have had their absolute minimum and maximum age limits revised according to this new scale. Therefore users of the database who have compiled their own files based on the old database should be aware that the assigned absolute ages have now changed.
