Abstract

The southern border of the Paris Basin has undergone successive weathering events during the Tertiary. Fluviatile and lacustrine deposits are scattered, being mainly confined to several North-South trending grabens. These are generally devoid of fossils which would allow them to be dated. A discontinuous blanket of weathering products is the main record of this long period of continental evolution. The successive paleolandscapes may be interpreted from these scattered remnants
