The lithofacies, paleogeography, and tectonics of the Jurassic sediments were studied in the footwall of the Carpathian Foredeep and outer units of the Carpathian Flysch Belt in southern Moravia. The major lithofacies were correlated and shown in a set of well logs and regional geological cross-sections. The distribution of facies types is demonstrated in their thicknesses and geological structures. Both cross sections and regional maps (structural and thickness maps) include informations based on deep borehole data and seismic investigation. Some remarks refer to petroleum geology.
