Magnetic susceptibility correlation. Tie-points between H-32, CG-1, Section C, Sinsin, and Fuhe were obtained by visually correlating distinct features in magnetic susceptibility (red ties). The gray ties were established by correlating distinct features in carbon isotope geochemistry (Fig. 6). We construct a common floating age model for all sections by assigning an age relative to the F–F boundary to each tie-point, according to the existing astrochronologic framework of Section C and Kowala15, 16. These ages are listed in black. The tie-point ages listed in green indicate the “optimized” tie-point ages, after 5000 Monte Carlo simulations (“Methods”). The latter tie-point ages are used for the depth-to-time conversion used in Figs. 2 and 3. Fam.
