GCR block descriptions: Geomorphology 1997


Provided here are the geomorphology GCR block descriptions, produced as part of the Geological Conservation Review. These ‘blocks’ provided an overall structure for site selection by ensuring that the different themes of geoheritage or Earth science would receive comparable treatment.

Geomorphology blocks cover the history and development of landforms and geomorphological processes active today,, such as rivers, coasts and landslides.

The Geomorphology block descriptions provided here include the following:

  • Block 19: Caves (CAV);
  • Block 22: Coastal Geomorphology of England (CST-GME-EG);
  • Block 23: Coastal Geomorphology of Scotland (CST-GME-SC);
  • Block 24: Coastal Geomorphology of Wales (CST-GME-WL);
  • Block 30: Fluvial Geomorphology of England (FLU-GME-EG);
  • Block 33: Fluvial Geomorphology of Scotland (FLU-GME-SC);
  • Block 34: Fluvial Geomorphology of Wales (FLU-GME-WL);
  • Block 39: Karst (KAR);
  • Block 47: Mass movement (MAS).

Please note that the descriptions for blocks 22 (Coastal Geomorphology of England), 23 (Coastal Geomorphology of Scotland), and 24 (Coastal Geomorphology of Wales) are essentially the same.

GCR block descriptions are based largely on existing GCR publications, where available. More detailed information about the topics covered in each block can be found in the relevant GCR volume.
