They not only went beyond the Curie temperature (the temperature in which certain materials lose their magnetic properties, replaced by induced magnetism), they went beyond the critical end point (in which a liquid and its vapor can coexist).
The increase in the magnetism caused by these features results from the cumulative contribution of both thermoremanence and induced magnetism, formed through different processes (Tauxe 2002) which (in this case) result from human activity.
Induced magnetism is acquired by a complex series of processes first described by Le Borgne (1955), where iron minerals are reduced and then oxidised to form the more magnetically susceptible forms magnetite and maghemite.
