AbstractIn view of the time and effort that go into a careful study of paleomagnetic stratigraphy, it seems unlikely that this technique will ever become as routine a correlation tool as biostratigraphy. However, because of the global synchroneity of reversals, polarity stratigraphy offers unique chronological precision for the resolution of particular stratigraphic questions. Polarity stratigraphy is making it possible to refine biostratigraphy as a chronological tool, in particular by clarifying the temporal relations between sequences of fossil zones based on groups of organisms which do not usually occur in the same sedimentary facies - such as marine and non-marine groups.-from AuthorDept of Geol & Geophys, Univ of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA.
