Short summary
This paper focuses on the record of lithospheric deformations within an intracratonic basin. This study is based on a detailed analysis of sedimentology and stratigraphy of the Paris Basin (European plate). We identified four intraplate deformations during the Palaeocene-early Eocene period. Age, amplitude, wavelength, and orientation of these deformations are specified and attributed to the geodynamic events. This paper is based on results from J. Briais Phd thesis.
