Titanomagnetites possess substantial conductivities and as such are of interest to geologists studying rock magnetism. Their magnetic properties depend on composition and cation distribution, which in turn are sensitive to oxidation and thermal history. This means that titanomagnetites, when naturally coexisting with ilmenite-hematite solid solutions, can be used in geobarometry and geothermometry. It was established that the thermoelectric coefficient could be used to study cation distributions in ferrospinels.
