Abstract

Correlation of lithostratigraphic sections is widely used to examine the nature of lateral facies changes within or between basins. It can provide significant clues for regional environmental and palaeogeographic reconstructions. There are problems associated with lithostratigraphic correlation; diachronous deposition of similar lithological units may not be recognized. We report here an attempt to determine lateral facies changes in coeval sedimentary sections, through three-dimensional magnetostratigraphic correlations in the Guide Basin, an intramontane basin in the northeastern part of the Tibetan Plateau. The method is successful for correlating lateral facies and helps to identify sediment sources in the basin.
