The Early Cretaceous represents a time interval in the greenhouse world that was characterized by dramatic changes in the paleogeography, paleoceanography, and paleoclimate of the Earth system. Furthermore, a striking, prominent feature of the geomagnetic polarity time scale is the ~34 m.y. period of the normal polarity field (Cretaceous Normal Polarity Superchron). Although marine anomalies and paleomagnetic data from deep-sea cores and land sections indicate that a reversed polarity (M0r) with a duration of ~0.4 m.y. occurred before the superchron, incomplete exposure, coupled with gaps in sampling due to the presence of marl layers, has limited the identification of M0r...
