Text (BGS Exhibition Poster)
Multibeam echosounder and other ‘best available’ bathymetry datasets have been combined with high-resolution digital surface models (NEXTMap) to reveal strong onshore-offshore evidence of palaeo-ice streaming in the catchments of the Forth and the Tweed, and offshore north-east England. Long suspected to terminate offshore, the flow path and dimensions of the Forth and Tweed palaeo-ice streams can now be reconstructed with some certainty using these new data.
