Quick Reference

Landscapes of areal glacial scouring have been described as comprising irregular depressions with intervening bosses scraped by ice and labelled ‘knock and lochan’ topography, but Johansson et al. (2001) Geografiska A 83 suggest that an etched bedrock surface is a prerequisite for this type of landscape to develop.
