The occurrence, geometry and formation of large sand bodies in the southern bight of the North Sea and the Chirikov Basin in the northeastern Bering Sea are discussed. The large sand bodies consist of a lower sequence of sand banks and an upper sequence of stacked sand waves. The geometry and arrangement of the different lithotypes are not only controlled by the latest sea level rise, but also by the basin geometry.
