Frequent marine bands in the Early Westphalian of the Netherlands are replaced by peat marshes followed upwards by a braided-river/fluvial-plain system in the late Westphalian-Stephanian. Sediments are limited to the depocenters Stephanian. Asselian to Artinskian deposits are represented by Lower Rotliegende volcanoclastic, basaltic volcanics and sediments of continental environment.
