Description :
A project has been initiated that will produce an interactive website searchable by maps and database terms, aimed at increasing knowledge and awareness of the geodiversity, landforms and processes of Britain and Northern Ireland. It has the following objectives : (1) to make existing knowledge on the physical landscape and geomorphology of Britain more widely accessible; (2) to increase knowledge and awareness of physical attributes of the landscape; (3) to provide a synthesis of present knowledge; (4) to identify gaps in present knowledge as a platform for future societally relevant research. The components and steps in the project are outlined.
