A paleomagnetic and magnetic fabric study of the Aptian to Albian Perforada Formation, the oldest sedimentary unit of the Cretaceous Valle Group, was conducted to determine whether the Perforada inclination had been shallowed by burial compaction and to correct the inclination for any shallowing. The Perforada Formation is located on the Vizcaino terrane of the Vizcaino Peninsula of west central Baja California. An accurate paleolatitude will indicate whether the Vizcaino terrane is… CONTINUE READING
