Detailed facies analyses have been carried out on the Triassic Skagerrak Formation on core material from the Thisted-2 well, Denmark. Facies patterns in the sediments show affinity to present day river models. The informations are combined into a braidplain model in which the proximal braidplain was composed of featureless Platte-type streams. Deeper South Saskatchewan-type streams represented the intermediate braidplain. The distal braidplain was dominated by ephemeral streams. Towards north
