In the Chiba Composite Section, a candidate for the Lower-Middle Pleistocene GSSP which is currently under review, a lot of stratigraphic studies using paleomagentism, marine microfossils, tephra layers and isotopes have been conducted intensively to propose GSSP. The aim of this session is to summarize and discuss scientific results from those studies including stratigraphic, chronologic and sedimentologic researches focusing on the Chiba Composite Section and/or some other contemporary sedimentary sequences.
