One of the goals in environmental magnetism is to understand the link between climate change and the characteristics of magnetic particles in rocks, soils and sediments. Rock-magnetic analyses sometimes are non-unique, which hinders an unambiguous identification of the magnetic particles that carry the climatic information. In this thesis, several complementary methods from chemistry and soil science are examined to explore whether they can assist in improving the determination of mineral-magnetic climate proxies. The first two parts of this thesis describe the results of tests with chemical extraction techniques (CBD and AAO-Fe2+ methods) on natural samples fro...
