The Bayesian PSVC obtained in this work is restricted to the last 400 years, due to the lack of paleomagnetic and geochronologic data.
Specific topics examined include thermal evolution and exhumation of deep-level batholithic exposures in Sierra Nevada, California; structural controls on middle Cretaceous sedimentation in the Toney Butte area of Ochoco basin, central Oregon; and geochronologic constraints across the Main Central Thrust shear zone in India.
However it is not clear how these units are related to each other because of poor exposure and lack of detailed geochronologic data.

To overcome this imperfection, since the beginning of our collaboration (Bolikhovskaya & Molodkov 1999; Molodkov & Bolikhovskaya 1999, 2002) the Pleistocene palynostratigraphy, based on the most complete and thoroughly studied loess-soil sections, has been calibrated to the geochronologic time scale using correlation between principal palaeoclimatic signals inferred from pollen data on the one hand and the World Ocean transgressions on the other.
