The Triassic Songpan-Ganzi Complex (SGC) of central china is one of the world’s largest ancient turbidite systems, containing a thick succession of Anisian through Norian (∼240-210 Ma) turbidites. Geotectonically, the Songpan-Ganzi complex is situated at the juncture of several tectonic blocks: North china, Qiadam, South china, and North Tibet (i.e., Qiangtang; 1). Songpan-Ganzi basin closure and inversion occurred during early Jurassic time and was later intruded and locally metamorphosed by Jurassic to Cretaceous plutons. Few studies document the nature of these turbidites due to the limited nature of outcrop exposures, steep topography, steep dip angles (70-90°) associated...
