In the Sikhote-Alin-Priamurye area of southeastern Russia, folded and faulted fragments of sedimentary and less common volcanic rocks comprise tectonostrati-graphic units (complexes) that are imbricated. Sections of coherent, correlative strata composed of chert, siliceous mudstone, mudstone, siltstone, and sandstone within the tectonic stacks distinguish subterranes that are grouped into a suite of regional terranes. Among the ubiquitously imbricated strata, the age of deformed units ranges from Middle Paleozoic up to Late Jurassic–Early Cretaceous (Tithonian–Berriasian). Chaotic units (mélange) that are represented by siltstone and sandy siltstone matrix containing different-sized and different-aged lumps, blocks, and fragments of cherts, limestone, sandstones, basalt, and...
