The Late Jurassic geologic record in Mongolia is poorly known, partly due to only sparsely preserved outcrops, but also because of the region's remoteness and limited body of published geological data compared to China and other parts of Eurasia. Considered in the broader context of Mesozoic sedimentary basin dynamics, the Late Jurassic record that has been studied is both informative and perplexing. Late Jurassic sedimentary basins are preserved in the subsurface throughout the country, and they are partially exposed (along with their igneous and metamorphic counterparts) where they have been inverted by Cretaceous–Cenozoic faulting.
