About this book

Presents a synthesis of the principal environmental characteristics of the Cretaceous in East and South Asia, discussing aspects of stratigraphy, sedimentology, paleontology, geochemistry, tectonics, petrology, mineralogy, and geophysics. The research was accomplished under IGCP project 350, which deals with the biological, climatological and physical environments of this region during the Cretaceous.
