The Sint200 record of Guyodo & Valet (1996) and geomagnetic data of McElhinny & Senanayake (1982), as well as the palaeopole position determined by Ohno & Hamano (1992), can be used to calculate palaeogeomagnetic latitudes and dipole moments for time intervals of 0.
5-10 ka, we calculate geomagnetic latitude from geographic latitude and the palaeopole positions of Ohno & Hamano (1992) by subtracting the palaeocolatitude from 90[degrees] (Eq.
