- The Cambrian succession in the North China Platform comprises a mixed carbonate-siliciclastic sequence, superbly exposed in the southern part of Shandong Province, China. In order to refine the lithostratigraphy of the Cambrian succession, this paper presents detailed sedimentary logs of outcrop sections in the Jinan, Laiwu, Jining, and Linyi areas. The entire succession consists of six lithologic units: Liguan, Zhushadong, Mantou, Zhangxia, Gushan, and Chaomidian formations in ascending order. The upper boundary of the Zhushadong Formation is refined as the base of the first purple mudstone bed of the Mantou Formation. The Mantou Formation is, in turn, bounded at the top by a thick oolitic grainstone bed of the Zhangxia Formation. The upper boundary of the Gushan Formation is placed at the base of a distinct bioclastic grainstone bed of the Chaomidian Formation. The constituent members of the Zhushadong, Mantou, and Chaomidian formations are also refined. Seventeen trilobite biozones are recognized, representing the Cambrian Series 2 to the Furongian.
