Finlayson, A G. 2014. Model metadata report for the Great Glen — Moray Firth merged Rockhead Elevation Model. British Geological Survey Internal Report, OR/14/060.

The modelled surface comprises a merged onshore-offshore RHEM using a combined GOCAD and GSI3D workflow. In the production of the merged RHEM, surfaces for the base of water, peat and superficial deposits (undifferentiated) were constructed in GSI3D. A merged onshore-offshore digital surface model was also derived in GOCAD from an onshore Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and offshore bathymetric data.
