Abstract
    Grain size trends and sedimentary structures of Eocene continental shelf deposits from offshore and onshore drillings in West Belgium were combined for reconstruction of depositional environments.The VAIL-model for siliciclastic sedimentation on shelf margins allows systems tracts identification on basis of grain size signals. The (put into revision) Eocene lithostratigraphy could therefore be transferred into sequence stratigraphy.Sediment genetic interpretation of sedimentary structures and grain size trends, together with sediment supply indications, suggests a Pre-Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta high on the shelf as depositional system.
