英文摘要: The Late Aalenian (earliest Middle Jurassic) Polyplocussandstein Formation in the vicinity of Wolfsburg (SE Lower Saxony, Germany) was deposited on the progradational lower delta plain of a large fluvial-dominated delta system. Detailed lithofacies analyses on several outcrops pointto five associations of eight lithofacies types: i) point bar sheets, ii) chute channels, iii) natural levees, iv) crevasse splay sheet sandstones and v) interdistributary bays and, combined with published well data, enable a more detailed palaeogeographic reconstruction than previously available.Palaeohydraulic analysis on lateral shifting point bar sheets of a subsidiary distributary channel enable the reconstruction of an up to 45 m wide and 4 m deep meandering channel of high sinuosity ( P 1.8) and mean...
