palaeomagnetic pole The pole position calculated from palaeomagnetic or archaeomagnetic directions, assuming an axial geocentric-dipole model of the Earth's geomagnetic field. It should be calculated on the mean direction of sufficient observations so that past secular variations of the geomagnetic field will have been averaged out. See PALAEOMAGNETISM.
