Accurate and precise dating of individual volcanogenic beds that spread across multiple sedimentary successions is a powerful tool to untangle stratigraphic age contradictions, since these horizons are deposited synchronously. In this study, we show that combining apatite chemistry with zircon age, Th/U ratio, and Hf isotope composition leads to reliable(More)
This study is based on zircon U-Pb ages of 12 volcanic ash layers and volcanogenic sandstones from two deep water sections with conformable and continuous formational Permian–Triassic boundaries (PTBs) in the Nanpanjiang Basin (South China). Our dates of single, thermally annealed and chemically abraded zircons bracket the PTB in Dongpan and Penglaitan and(More)
New high-resolution U-Pb dates indicate a duration of 89 ± 38 kyr for the Permian hiatus and of 14 ± 57 kyr for the overlying Triassic microbial limestone in shallow water settings of the Nanpanjiang Basin, South China. The age and duration of the hiatus coincides with the Permian-Triassic boundary (PTB) and the extinction interval in the Meishan Global(More)
