Seismic facies analysis was performed on approximately 1540 km of 2D high-resolution multi-channel seismic data from the German North Sea. Six seismic facies were defined in the study area. Facies 1 covers the Quaternary sand depositional system. Facies 2, 3, and 4 represent three types of tunnel-valley infill. These valleys were formed during different glacial periods in the study area. All of them are characterized by erosional incision into underlying deposits. Facies 5 probably represents the youngest post-glacial sediments after the retreat of last glacier. Facies 6 is a typical seismic reflector for peat.
