A new approach to the relief of Great Britain. III. Derivation of the contribution of neotectonic movements and exceptional regional denudation to the present relief

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The aim of this paper is to use essentially empirical approach to analysis of this British database already utilised in Papers I and II of these series to explore in more detail the British landform. The pattern of denudational unloading and thus of isostatic uplift is mapped and compared with actual mean altitude. It is shown that the sum of predicted isostatic uplift and local base-level is closely related to the current mean altitude of the uplands. Regional height differences related to the major structural regions of Britain are calculated
