The North Alpine Foreland Basin (NAFB) comprises sediments of late Eocene to middle Miocene age. The earliest deposits are the North Helvetic Flysch which are exposed in the regions of Glarus and Graubunden, eastern Switzerland. The Taveyannaz sandstones are the first thrust wedge (southerly) derived sediments of the North Helvetic Flysch.
