Two postorogenic sequences are also found in the vicinity of the synform: the freshwater Upper Carboniferous sequence is dominated by coarse grained conglomerates and sandstones with subordinate fluvial and lacustrine clays while the Cretaceous sequence is characterised by sandy and clayey lacustrine sediments together with glauconitic sandstones and calcareous siltstones deposited in shallow epicontinental seas.
