Abstract
    Pre-Permian sedimentation in northwestern Europe has been controlled by the structural evolution of this area. Cambro-Silurian deposition has been influenced by partly synsedimentary movements (among others Ordovician-Silurian uplift south of the Brabant/Condroz zone, such as the Stavelot-Venn Massif).Presence, respectively absence of important late Caledonian deformation has subdivided northwestern Europe into three major sedimentary environments during the Devono-Carboniferous: the Caledonian fold belt and the Cornwall-Rhenish Basin which are separated by the Belgo-Dutch platform.Subsequently, the Hercynian or Variscan orogenies have gradually reduced the sedimentary area and produced the overall withdrawal of the marine environment. Eventually, large-scale overthrusts - such as the Dinant Nappe - masked parts of the original sedimentary basins.
