Abstract

Northeast Scotland is an area exhibiting selective erosion by Quaternary ice sheets. In this area both glacial and preglacial landforms exist in close proximity. The depths of erosion which this modification represents are calculated on the assumption of various depths of preglacial weathering. The aim of this paper is therefore to calculate the depth and rate of Quaternary erosion across northeast Scotland using geomorphological reconstruction
