This book represents a landmark in the investigation of the event stratigraphy controversy. It covers a field of geology which is becoming as important to our understanding of the earth history as the theory of plate-tectonics.
In recent years, Chinese geologists have carried out a series of thorough and comprehensive research projects on several stratigraphic type sections located mainly in South China. Important data has been obtained on biostratigraphy, sedimentology, geochemistry, magnetostratighraphy and lithostratigraphy and the purpose of this book is to introduce this data and to review evidence that several major boundary events in the Phanerozoic are probably of extraterrestrial origin.
