Abstract

The surface morphology of Denmark is predominantly of glacial origin, created in depositional, deformational and erosional environments. In addition, postglacial marine, freshwater and aeolian processes have formed a variety of landforms. Overviews of the Danish landscape were published as geomorphological maps (Milthers 1948; Schou 1949; Smed 1981), and a new one is currently in preparation. On Bornholm, the morphology differs from the rest of the country because bedrock is present at or near the surface. This paper describes drumlins formed on bedrock on Bornholm, which have not previously been recognised.
