Cambrian outcrops in the North China Platform and the locations of studied sections (red stars). A–Wuhai section: Gandel Mountain, Wuhai City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China; B–Diaoquan section: Diaoquan village, Lingqiu county, Datong City, Shanxi Province, China; C–Xiaweidian section: Xiaweidian village, Mentougou district, Beijing, China; D–Sandaogou section: Sandaogou village, Suizhong county, Huludao City, Liaoning Province, China; E–Fuzhou Bay section: Fuzhou Bay town, Jinzhou district, Dalian City, Liaoning Province, China; F–Jinzhou Bay section: Dalian City, Liaoning Province, China. Topographically, the western margin of Yimeng landmass was steeper than the eastern during the Cambrian, which means that the Cambrian successions in the Wuhai section is related to a deeper water environment than those of the other five sections (Feng 2004)
