Magnetic stratigraphy of the lower-middle Eocene Domengine, Avenal, and Yokut sandstones, western San Joaquin Basin, Fresno and Kings counties, California



Magnetic stratigraphy of the lower-middle Eocene Domengine, Avenal, and Yokut sandstones, western San Joaquin Basin, Fresno and Kings counties, California



Book - Pacific Section, Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists 91: 45-55



The Domengine, Yokut, and Avenal Sandstones are relatively thin (30-100 m thick) but widespread nearshore and deltaic sands found along the western margin and in the subsurface of the San Joaquin and Sacramento basins. Molluscs from the Domengine Sandstone formed the basis for definition of the middle Eocene "Domengine Stage." The Domengine Sandstone has also yielded extensive deposits of coal and oil. Magnetic analyses of samples from these units found a stable remanence held in both magnetite and hematite, and this remanence passed a reversal test. The Yokut Sandstone is entirely of normal polarity, whereas the Domengine and Avenal Sandstones are entirely of reversed polarity. Based on calibration from calcareous nannofossils, the Yokut Sandstone is correlated with the latest early Eocene magnetic Chron C22n (49.0-49.9 Ma), whereas the Domengine and Avenal Sandstones correlate with the earliest middle Eocene Chron C21r (47.9-49.0 Ma).
