Figure 6. A composite stratigraphy from industrial wells in the eastern
part of the Pearl River Mouth Basin, which lies on the shelf and uppermost
continental slope northwest of the northern sites (PRMB in Fig. 3 for
bathymetry). These wells provide the seismic reflector sequence and
general age structure to be correlated with the more marine ODP sites on
the slope. Note the nonmarine sequence beginning from the upper Oligocene
(modified from Jiang et al., 1994).
