Shorelines Formed During Quaternary Marine Regression: Examples and Inferences from Southern Scotland (Progress Report)

William Graham Jardine & William Edgar Boyd
As elsewhere, the main method of identifying the position of a former (regressive) Quaternary marine shoreline in S Scotland is by the recognition of either a physical or a vegetational boundary. Commonly a physical boundary is a geomorphological feature.

Similarly, at several locations along...
