Cambrian System at Wangcun section, west Hunan Province, represents typical sedimentary successions on the Jiangnan Slop Belt. Traditionally, the Lower Cambrian Series at the Wangcun section is divided into Balang Formation, Qingxudong Formation; the Middle Cambrian is divided into Aoxi Formation as well as the lower member of Huqiao Formation, and the Upper Cambrian Series is divided into the upper member of Huqiao Formation and Zhuitun Formation. Forming-stage of turbidity sediments within the Huqiao Formation can be attributed to seven long-term periods. The first turbidity succession in the Huqiao Formation includes 69 cycles that are attributed to 11 parasequences. The second turbidity succession in the Huaqiao Formation includes 37 cycles that are attributed to 7 parasequences. Lower part of!each parasequence consists of initiated turbidity sediments, and the upper part!of each parasequences consists of distal turbidity sediments. A gradual rise in sea level can be deduced based on the marine sediments within each parasequence. The first turbidity succession formed during the sea-level rising period consists of transgression system. However, the second turbidity succession deposited on the relatively steeper slope during the low sea-level period forms the low water system. The Lower-Middle Cambrian turbidity succession frequently deposited on the Jiangnan Slope Belt suggesting that periodic activities existed during the formation of deep-fault along the margin of carbonate Platform.
