    Lower to Middle Turonian deposits within the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin (Central Europe) consist of coarse-grained deltaic sandstones passing distally into fine-grained offshore sediments. Dune-scale cross-beds superimposed on delta-front clinoforms indicate a vigorous basinal palaeocirculation capable of transporting coarse-grained sand across the entire depth range of the clinoforms (ca 35 m). Bi-directional, alongshore-oriented, trough cross-set axes, silt drapes and reactivation surfaces indicate tidal activity. However, the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin at this time was over a thousand kilometres from the shelf break and separated from the open ocean by a series of small islands. The presence of tidally-influenced deposits in a setting where co-oscillating tides are likely to have been damped down by seabed friction and blocked by emergent land masses is problematic.
