Abstract

A large-scale pattern of Holocene coastal evolution of the western Belgian coastal plain has been reconstructed by means of a series of palaeogeographical maps at 9 time slices between 9.5 and 6 cal. ka BP together with schematical cross-sections of the vertical sediment accumulation. The time-depth estimate and the spatial extension of the palaeo-environments is based on the relative sea-level (RSL) curve and radiocarbon dates of (basal and intercalated) peats and shells. This paper asserts that the morphology of the flooded surface is a controlling factor in the distribution of the Holocene sediments : a 3D terrain model is presented
