Data set: Paleomagnetism of the La Mora Formation: Late Triassic-Late Jurassic Paleolatitudinal record for Southern Mexico and its Gondwanan disconnection
This data set includes three data groups related to the work: "Paleomagnetism of the La Mora Formation: Late Triassic-Late Jurassic Paleolatitudinal record for Southern Mexico and its Gondwanan disconnection" (Accepted paper in International Geology Review; DOI: 10.1080/00206814.2022.2121945). The three data groups deal with: (1) a Matlab session file of the work on hysteresis cycles (Data S1), (2) a Microsoft excel file with the data of the Isothermal Remanent Magnetization (Data S2), and (3) a compressed *.rar archive containing *.col files of paleomagnetic directions that can be opened and worked within the online software: paleomagnetism.org (Data S3). Each of these data sets is commonly used in paleomagnetic and rock magnetism studies. In this case, they are data that support the hypothesis of tectonic northward translation of the Mixteca terrane, southern Mexico, during the Pangea breakup for the Late Triassic-Late Jurassic. Therefore, this repository data set, together with the geological evidence described in the article to which they belong, must be considered for their use and interpretation.
Steps to reproduce
The proper way to reproduce the data sets is: Data S1: Load session files into HystLab software based on Paterson et al. (2018). Data S2: This file contains magnetization data as a function of the magnetic field, graphs it, and interprets it according to the magnetic properties of the minerals. Data S3: Upload *.col files into the paleomagnetism.org web page based on Koymans et al. (2020).
