Abstract
    The present-day French-Belgian North Sea coastal barrier and coastal plain were shaped after the last lee Age, when especially between 10,000 and 5,000 years ago the global sea level underwent a rapid rise and the gently sloping northern part of the Flemish plain and the incised river mouths were flooded. The present paper brings an integrated overview of the French-Belgian coastal plain's recent geological and historical evolution, such as it is documented by the sedimentary record as well as by historical sources. The geologic approach provides indirect and environmental evidence for the coastal barrier dynamics. Also, some implications on present-day coastal management are given.
