Abstract (in english)
   Remanent magnetization of titanohematite lamellae within oxide assemblages in crustal rocks has been proposed to be a source for intense magnetic anomalies both on Earth as well as Mars. In an attempt to explain the origin of such strong magnetization in titanohematite bearing rocks, two hypotheses have been proposed. First hypothesis (Robinson et al., 2002) proposes a new type of magnetization (lamellar magnetization)associated with the contact zone between the ferrian ilmenite and titanohematite. Second hypothesis proposes that the intense magnetization is a consequence of an "empirical law" related to the low saturation magnetization of titanohematite (Kletetschka et al., 2006). We evaluate these two hypotheses in light of further rock magnetic tests. Namely, we compare thermal demagnetization (TD) of Natural Remanent Magnetization (NRM) with TD of Saturation Isothermal Remanent Magnetization (SIRM).
