Remagnetization is a common phenomenon in rocks, and developing a greater understanding of its mechanisms has several benefits. Acquisition of a secondary magnetization is usually tangible evidence of a diagenetic or thermal event, which can be dated using palaeomagnetic techniques. This is important because the timing of diagenetic and thermal events is commonly difficult to determine. Remagnetization can also obscure primary magnetizations and a better understanding of remagnetization could improve our ability to uncover primary magnetizations. Many chemical remagnetization mechanisms have been proposed, including those associated with chemical alteration by a number of different fluids (e.g. orogenic, weathering, mineralizing, hydrocarbons) and burial diagenetic processes (e.g. clay diagenesis, maturation of organic matter). This book contains case studies and review articles that focus on remagnetization, chemical remagnetization mechanisms, and magnetic changes associated with chemical alteration by hydrocarbons.

This book is hardback and is, as usual for an SP, well printed and bound. It contains many diagrams (some in colour), figures, photographs and tables, distributed through 15 papers by various authors, with extensive references after each. The book is quite expensive (less so to Fellows!), but nonetheless constitutes excellent value, even at full price. --Reviewed by Steve Rowlatt, Featured in Geoscience July 2013
The current Special Publications is focusing on chemical remagnetization and changes of magnetic minerals, genetically associated with hydrocarbon migration through sedimentary rocks. This is a key issue, since remanence recorded in secondary magnetic phases can be dated by comparison with reference paleomagnetic data....Gathering articles from top-class scientists, this monographic volume is an excellent review of the current state-of-the-art in fundamental paleomagnetic problems related to diagenesis and origin of the natural remanent magnetization, setting a stage for better cooperation between academia and oil industry.
The volume includes informative and legible, black and white and color figures. Index of terms includes also reference to table and figures. The book will be useful not only for paleomagneticians, but also for geochemists, petrologists, structural geologists and sedimentologists. --Review by Marek Lewandowski (Institute of Geological Sciences) Polish Academy of Sciences.
