      Neogene/Quaternary boundary; palaeomagnetic data

    • Abstract

       

      The Neogene/Quaternary boundary has been variously defined in different continents. A global review of the problem shows that only the Olduvai event on the palaeomagnetic timescale may provide an universally acceptable isochronous datum for delineating this boundary. The N/Q boundary in the Siwaliks, Kashmir and the Andamans in India is defined in the light of recent research.
