Figure F24. Representative vector endpoint diagrams (Zijderveld, 1967) of magnetization directions for sediment samples through stepwise AF demagnetization showing (A) multicomponent behavior with complicated path at higher AF field steps, (B) stable single ChRM component after removing the vertical overprint at 5 mT, and (C) unstable demagnetization behavior for a weakly magnetized sample. Open squares and solid circles represent the projection of the magnetization vector endpoints onto the vertical and horizontal planes, respectively. NRM = natural remanent magnetization.
