  1. aStratigraphic levels are indicated as stratigraphic distance from the Byk-E tephra bed
  2. bThe stratigraphic interval of the Chiba section is based on the full range of the outcrop
  3. cThe Yoro River section contains the Chiba section
  4. dThe stratigraphic levels are converted into the scale of the Yoro River and Yoro-Tabuchi sections
