A morphotectonic interpretation of the relief of Sweden is presented based on an analysis of the gross forms of the topography. Computer-made topographic profiles covering 76,375 km have been examined together with contour maps. New maps of relief and layers of height have also been used. The colour map belonging to this article depicts exhumed denudation surfaces of different age, polycyclic relief, important scarps interpreted as erosional or fault scarps, and the valley pattern. A basic chronology for denudation and cruustal movements within Fennoscandia is also proposed
