The Cenozoic North Sea Basin forms part of the larger Northwest European Basin (Vinken et al., 1988) that extends from the Atlantic shelves of Norway and Shetland in the north-west to the Carpathian Mountains in the south-east. After Eocene times, continuing post-rift subsidence in the North Sea Basin accomodated the deposition of up to 3000 m of Oligocene to Holocene sediments.
