Abstract

Paleomagnetic records of declination and inclination from sediments recovered from the bed of Lake Kinneret (32.4 N, 37.7 E) have been dated by radiocarbon techniques. The sediments spare the last 5 000 yr. Magnetic susceptibility logs display 13 maxima in the S-m-long sequences, which are related in changes in sediment carbonate content. The natural remanent magnetization intensity follows a similar pattern to that of susceptibility. The Kinneret paleosecular variation records point to a complex spatial pattern of Holocene secular variation with significant variations over distances as small as 1 000-2 000 km.
