Denmark is located at the eastern edge of the North Sea basin at the outlet from the Baltic Sea and North European rivers. Since Cretaceous time Denmark was characterised by almost continuous sedimentation of limestone, clays, silt and sand; deposited in a huge and varied deltaic system. At the same time the Danish area was tipping slowly towards the west- southwest so that in the central North Sea Tertiary sediments has a thickness of more than 1,500 meters while Cretaceous limestones are found at sea level in east Denmark. Therefore, together with the high sedimentation rate to the west, erosion took place in the east.
