Abstract
    A paleogeographic understanding of the genesis of a landscape in time and space is needed to collect and understand data for sea-level reconstruction. So-called sea-level index points can be derived from numerous sedimentary environments, but what is their indicative meaning and value? This chapter discusses specific paleogeographic methodologies to help answer this question. Key paleogeographic insights are presented from coastal and deltaic depositional sedimentary environments, and guidelines are provided to interpret sea-level index points from them.
