Magnetic properties and oxide petrography results are presented from dike samples recovered during Ocean Drilling Program Legs 137 and 140 at Hole 504B on the Costa Rica Rift. Although secondary magnetite is common, the most abundant magnetic phase is low-titanium magnetite produced during oxidation of primary (igneous) titanomagnetite. In general, titanomagnetite grains in the Leg 137/140 dike samples were observed to have experienced substantially higher degrees of high-temperature deuteric oxidation than the upper portion of the dike complex, suggesting a gradual decrease in the rate of cooling with depth. Paleomagnetic measurements indicate that samples recovered during Legs 137 and 140 acquired a component of drilling-induced remanent magnetization. However, stable magnetic inclinations determined after alternating-field demagnetization indicate the direction of the hardest component of magnetization is very near that predicted for this equatorial site (0°). The average intensity of natural remanent magnetization for the entire dike complex is 2.1 A/m, about half that observed for the overlying extrusive basalts. Room temperature rock magnetic measurements indicate that the effective magnetic grain size of the dike samples falls within the region described as pseudo-single domain. Together, these results suggest that the sheeted dike complex sampled at Hole 504B is capable of contributing to the anomaly observed at sea surface.
