Abstract

THERE ARE VERY FEW REFERENCES TO THUFURS IN BRITAIN. EVIDENCE SUGGESTS THIS IS DUE MAINLY TO THEIR INFREQUENT OCCURRENCE. BECAUSE OF THIS SITUATION IT WAS DECIDED TO EXAMINE A TYPE OF HUMMOCKY MICRORELIEF FOUND ABOVE 670 M ON THE MOOR HOUSE RESERVE. FOLLOWING A GENERAL SURVEY OF THE PROBLEM DETAILED WORK WAS CARRIED OUT ON THE DISTRIBUTION, SIZE MORPHOLOGY AND VEGETATION OF HUMMOCKS AT TWO CONTRASTING SITES ON THE RESERVE. AN ASSESSMENT OF POSSIBLE ORIGINS LED TO THE CONCLUSION THAT THESE HUMMOCKS ARE PERIGLACIAL FEATURES OF THE THUFUR VARIETY.
