Abstract

There are abundant nonmarine Cretaceous deposits around the globe, but it is difficult to correlate the nonmarine strata within the international chronostratigraphic framework chart, which was established based on marine rocks and fossils. Fortunately, in the Lower Cretaceous of eastern Asia, there are both alternating nonmarine–marine sections and complete nonmarine sections. The approaches for dating the nonmarine Cretaceous rocks and fossils, and the nonmarine and marine correlation of Lower Cretaceous strata in eastern Asia, are summarized in this paper.
