Abstract

The AA. describe a simple, if fairly large, database of relief and geology for Great Britain and the surrounding shelf based on the kilometre squares of the National Grid. The database affords a new approach to establishing the importance of rock resistance to erosion as a factor affecting the form of the present land surface, the legacy of older tectonic movements, and the role of neotectonics. It can be used to test existing hypotheses, or propose new ones. Initial data on land/shelf contrasts are presented
