About this book

Language: English

Carboniferous Boundaries in China is a collection of papers contributed to 11th international Congress of Carboniferous Stratigraphy and Geolgoy to be held in Beijing from august 31 to September 5, 1987. The collection reflects the updating knowledge and achievement on the study of the Carboniferous boundaries in China. It contains 13 papers dealing with both the correlation of the boundary beds in different facies in China and the intercontinental correlation. A desirable stratotype section for the Devonian Carboniferous boundary and two potential mid Carboniferous boundary stratotype sections are proposed respectively in this collection. The biostratigraphical standard demarking the carboniferous Permian boundary is also discussed.

This collection aims at providing th ebroad readers with important information about the progress in the recent study of the Carboniferous boundaries in China. It is of benefit to international scientific exchange in the field of geology, especially in biostratigraphy.
