Abstract

Paleodirections and -intensities were investigated for Pliocene volcanic units from Styria (Austria). Only four virtual geomagnetic poles (VGP) lie close to the geographic pole, while all others are concentrated in a narrow longitude sector oshore South America at low VGP latitudes and relatively low paleointensities were obtained. 39Ar/40Ar ages of 2 sites with low latitude VGPs agree at 2.47 0.11 Ma and allow for correlation of the Styrian transitional directions with cryptochron C2r.2r-1 of the geomagnetic polarity time scale.
