The 200- to 300-m-thick Raukelv Formation was deposited in an intracratonic seaway between East Greenland and Norway during the Late Jurassic-earliest Cretaceous (Volgian-Valanginian), a period of considerable tectonic unrest in the region. The formation is three-dimensionally exposed over 900 km2. Four basic architectural elements are recognized: 1. The sandbank (SB) element is composed of single, tabular mega-cross-beds 15-50 m thick, which extend over the whole outcrop area (900 km2). 2. the sand-dune (SD) element consists of a large-scale tabular cross-bedded coset, 2-8 m thick, which extends over the whole outcrop area (900 km2)....
