For example, evidence from honeybees that approach novel environments from a fixed magnetic direction
suggests that magnetic cues may help to organize spatial behaviour, possibly by standardizing the vantage point for retinotopic maps in unfamiliar habitats (Collett & Baron 1994).
205 still lists the magnetic direction
indicator as a must-have item.
What was the magnetic direction
of rocks at the time?
Modern EFIS will display a little arrow showing the wind relative to the airplane and a legend next to it with the magnetic direction
There is a specific mention of a magnetic direction
finder - a compass - around 1040.
The northern zone showed a mean remnant magnetic direction
The rocks' magnetic direction
, or "polarity," is preserved.
Such pinning of the magnetic direction
is needed for the functioning of a special structure known as a spin valve, which is used in modern read heads of computer hard disks.
This precision tool simultaneously records drift angle and magnetic direction
of the hole.
The bias provided by a small permanent magnet, located near the recording surface, is an order of magnitude too weak to change the magnetic direction
As a result, an unknown portion of the magnetic rock gradually changed to realign itself with the prevailing magnetic direction
, jeopardizing geologists' ability to chart plate movement.
These are called Bloch walls or Neel walls, depending on the plane in which the rotation of magnetic direction
