Definition This unit consists mainly of halites, alternating with anhydrites and grey, anhydritic claystones in basinal settings, notably in the Central Graben, the northern part of the Off Holland Low and the Ems Low. The halites disappear towards the basin margin. In places, anhydrite is almost absent (e.g. well K14-01).
