Magnetostratigraphy and paleomagnetic poles from Late Triassic-earliest Jurassic strata of the Newark basin: Discussion and reply

Lucas, Spencer G.; Steiner, Maureen B.; Huber, Phillip; Hunt, Adrian P.; Witte, William K.; Kent, Dennis V.; Olsen, Paul E.

The Discussion of Lucas and others underscores the potential usefulness of magnetostratigraphy for correlation between red beds of the broadly coeval Chinle Group of the western interior and the Newark Supergroup of eastern North America. Detailed magnetostratigraphic correlation between the Newark and the Chinle is very likely to change significantly, however, with the addition of new data from both of these units, and hence such an attempt as proposed in the Discussion may be premature.
