Description :
In the Middle Eocene shallow-marine Brussels Sands a long sand body is partly exposed, bordering a channel which marks the erosional base of the Formation. This Kraaiberg facies shows a uniform sequence of metre-scale tabular, cross-bedded sets. Foresets dip parallel to the main axis of the sand body. The sedimentary structures suggest that the sand body was deposited during a short period, built up by a series of large, transverse bars. Their migration was governed by strongly asymmetrical tidal currents and was also affected by occasional storm erosion. - (Les AA.).
