These have played a major role in the development of plate tectonics and in establishing a geological time scale.

The magnetism of rocks is discussed in some detail with a warning of possible misinterpretations of the record. The latest observational results and theories are reviewed with special attention to the structure and geometry of the transition field. Changing conditions at the core-mantle boundary, their effect on reversals, the generation of plumes and the possible correlation of reversals with tectonic changes, ice ages or mass extinctions are thoroughly discussed, including suggested periodicities in the reversal record and in other geophysical data.
