Quaternary geology of the Solway
This report documents the Quaternary geology of the Solway lowlands of eastern Dumfries and Galloway and northern Cumbria. It enhances our scientific understanding of the landforms and sediments of the Quaternary Period (approximately corresponding to the last 2.6 million years). The applications of the science include assessments of sand and gravel resources, coastline stability, groundwater vulnerability, land use issues, positioning of landfill sites and assessment of land stability and flood potential.
