Deposition of the Daedong Supergroup has been considered to be related with the Triassic Songrim and Jurassic Daebo orogenies. The Chungnam Basin fills is an important sedimentary succession to understand the geological evolution of the Early to Middle Mesozoic Korean Peninsula. Previous paleontological and paleomagnetic studies have suggested the Late Triassic to Early Jurassic sedimentation of the Chungnam Basin fills. However, the orogenic model of the basin development has remained controversial because recently reported zircon U-Pb isotopic ages are not harmonious with the previous studies. This paper aims to review the stratigraphy, depositional age, and composition of the Chungnam Basin fills, together with test of the basin development models.
