The Southern North Sea Bight is a shallow marine, siliciclastic and intracratonic basin with gently dipping sediment packages indicative for a ramp-type basin margin. Four cored wells near the Belgian coast contain together a nearly continuous, 200m thick sediment succession of Eocene till early Oligocene age. Facies analysis suggests that part of these sediments are deposited in delta systems and part on muddy shelf. A sedimentation model for the delta complex is presented. Sequence stratigraphic analysis provides new clues for the reconstruction of relative sea-level changes and for the genetic interpretation of the various lithologic units and the large-scale architecture of the ramp-type margin.
