Abstract

During the construction of the E3 motorway (Courtrai-Ghent-Antwerp), Eo-Oligocene deposits were visible at Waasmunster. In order to find out the depositional environment, the grain-size distribution, the sedimentological parameters, the heavy minerals, the claymineral composition and the organic walled microfossils have been determined. Interpretation of the results suggests an environment of marine tidal flats during the sedimentation of the Bassevelde Member, followed by a sedimentary break, afterwards, in the base of the Berg Member prevailed estuarine, lagoonal or deltaic environments which at the top of the Berg Member have been replaced by dunes, as a result of a regression.
