The Ogurtsovo section, one of the key sections of the Ob’ region near Novosibirsk, has been comprehensively studied using a detailed geological description of deposits, granulometric and petromagnetic analyses. The combined methods allowed us not only to interpret the geologic structure of the Ogurtsovo section in terms of its facies and genesis but also to refine and supplement the Pleistocene geologic history of the region. Emphasis was placed upon relationships between granulometric and petromagnetic parameters. As a result, we have revealed regularities in the behavior of magnetic characteristics and their relationships as a function of granulometry in different lithogenetic types of deposits. On the example of this key section, criteria are proposed for distinguishing facies of the subaerial complex by analytical methods.
