Diatom analysis of a clayey Atlantic-Subboreal sequence from the western part of the Belgian coastal plain revealed the existence of intertidal conditions throughout, with the exception of a swampy lagoonal stage at the top of the basal peat. Several transgressive events were shown to have influenced the local palaeoenvironment. The possible relationship of these events to the Calais II and Calais III transgressions is discussed.
