The most conspicuous glacio-morphological depositional features on the continental shelf off north-west Britain are prominent ridges of late Pleistocene age on the West Shetland Shelf (Fig. 1). These features, which are well imaged on 1 kJ sparker profiles (Table 1), are large end-moraines up to 50 m high, 8 km wide, and can be traced for up to 60 km [Stoker and Holmes, 1991]. Five separate ridges have been identified, trending sub-parallel to the shelf edge (Fig. 1).
