Description: The United States Geological Survey (USGS) Paleomagnetics Laboratory was established in 1970, when Dr. Donald P. Elston of USGS negotiated with officials of the U.S. Forest Service in Flagstaff for the use of several buildings at the Fort Valley Experimental Forest (FVEF). The Fort Valley location was ideal for use as a laboratory, because its distance from Flagstaff mitigated the possibility of outside magnetic disturbance, which could affect any results obtained. It should also be noted that the necessary space was potentially available, in that most of the buildings were in states of disrepair and in danger of being torn down or moved. The USGS updated the buildings used by the Laboratory and helped ensure that the FVEF remained intact (Figure 1).
