Abstract

Although it is obvious that the gravels in the Flemish Banks consist of three main deposits, it is very hard to stake them out. Due to the Holocene marine transgressions the gravels are becoming a mixture of southern coming, Rhine and Meuse, and local clasts. In consequences of the tidal stream generated erosion, a coarse gravelly lag deposit develops in the interbank channels. Both grain-size and petrographic data demonstrate gravel paths leaving these channels. They indicate a net NNE transport of fine gravel oblique to the crest of the ridges
