Abstract
    In order to get a detailed insight of the Holocene palaeogeographical evolution, required for sea-level research, a number of temporary excavations and numerous borings have been interpreted in the eastern part of the Belgian coastal plain. These investigations made it possible to evaluate the feasibility of the coastal plain sedimentary sequences for classical sea-level research with radiocarbon-dated basal peat samples. It is argued that the Holocene geological conditions of the eastern part of the coastal plain were not favorite for the application of this classical method. As a result, alternative sea-level indicators had to be searched for. Attention was focused on the study of the palaeogeographical and potential sea-level changes during the last 2500 years.
