Abstract The western Ordos Basin (WOB), situated in a tectonic transition zone in the North China Craton, acts as an excellent example for studying the Mesozoic intraplate sedimentation and deformation in Asia. In this study, U-Pb ages for 1203 detrital zircons of 14 sandstone samples collected from 11 sections are presented to unravel the sediment source locations and paleogeographic environments of the Early–Middle Jurassic coal-bearing Yan'an Formation in the WOB. Data show that there are fiv...
