The paper deals with the relationship of the relief to geological structure of the Murmansk Massif which is a large morphostructure at the NE Kola Peninsula and corresponds to the continental part of the Murmansk tectonic block. Analysis of deformations of the initial - Pre-Eocene - planation surface permitted to construct a schematic map of amplitudes of neotectonic movements which formed principal features of the topography. The movements after the surface had been formed were mostly vertical and in the net result ascending. Medium and small landforms are predetermined by lithology. At the scheme of geomorphological subdivision the regions and units of hither order are identified on the morphostrural basis, while subregions and coastal zone identification is based on morphosculpture. - (L'Ed.)
