Abstract During the course of the French-American Mid-Oceanic Undersea study (FAMOUS), many samples of basaltic pillow lava were collected from the axial region of the Mid-Atlantic ridge near 37°N. The vertical axes and the tops of nine of these samples have been determined fairly accurately, allowing calculations of magnetic inclination at the time of the cooling of the lavas to be made with reasonable confidence.
