Abstract—The experiments on the determination of paleointensity Banc of the Earth’s magnetic field by Thellier method on basalts of the Berd (Jurassic) and Paravakar (Cretaceous) collections sampled in the northeastern Armenia in 2006 revealed an anomalous behavior of the Arai–Nagata diagrams. The anomaly manifests itself by a sharp drop in the intensity of natural remanent magnetization (NRM) under heating of samples to about 400°C, which is accompanied by a very weak acquisition of partial thermoremanent magnetizations (pTRMs) in this temperature interval. The further increase in temperature leads to the opposite phenomenon—an unexpectedly sharp rise in pTRMs intensity with almost no decrease in NRM, which creates the L-shape of the Arai–Nagata diagram. A similar phenomenon of a steep decline during thermal demagnetization was also established for remanent saturation magnetization Mrs(T). We carried out a number of magnetomineralogical experiments from which we conclude that, consistent with the hypothesis suggested by (Kosterov and Prevot, 1998), the sharp drop in Mrs(T) and NRM(T) curves is caused by the transitions of the domain state from a metastable configuration to a more stable one. These transitions are initiated by the processes of single- and heterophase oxidations of primary titanomagnetites under the laboratory heating of samples to moderate temperatures.
