Various types of Upper Devonian-Carboniferous deposits including numerous, large (>100m) mudmounds are well exposed in the Bolshoi Karatau Range, Tien Shan, Kazakhstan, which provide a source of new data for international stratigraphic correlation and for further understanding of reef evolution. A SCCS field trip will be held in August 2017 to the Bolshoi Karatau Range.
