Table 1 Palaeomagnetic data obtained from the Winterswijk quarry. Sites (site names) indicated with ‘(sp)’ only include ChRM directions obtained by fitting linear segments of demagnetization paths (setpoints) interpreted using principal component analysis (Kirschvink 1980). Sites (site names) indicated with ‘(sp + gc)’ also include great circle solutions referring to McFadden and McElhinny (1988)

From: Triassic (Anisian and Rhaetian) palaeomagnetic poles from the Germanic Basin (Winterswijk, the Netherlands)
