Welcome to the Utah Paleomagnetic Center (UPC) website.

Our research group uses the unique information encoded in magnetic materials to explore a variety of processes and phenomena in Earth System Science. We value an inclusive and interdisciplinary approach to research, both in terms of the science we do and the scientists doing the research. Check out the links above for more information about who we are and how we do what we do, the research that keeps us busy, and how and where we’ve shared our ideas with the larger community.
