Abstract

It is suggested that the Vlierzele Sands (late Lower Eocene) represent a longitudinal tidal sand ridge deposit. They consist of regular, cm- to dm-scale, cross-bedded sands originating from mobile, 20 cm-50 cm high, two-dimensional megaripples. In the lower ranges of this facies, the intact megaripple forms have been preserved under a cover of vaguely horizontally laminated sands. The latter could be the result of rapid storm deposition on the lower flank of the sand ridge. - (Les AA.)
