Summary:The sub-Cambrian peneplain is a fundamental landform in the scenery of the southernmost Baltic Shield. It had been shaped during an undefined time interval in the Late Precambrian and became conserved below a cover of Cambrian sedimentary rocks. After exhumation, the peneplain was subjected to further remodelling. In the study of the Phanerozoic denudational and tectonic history, the sub-Cambrian peneplain forms an important reference surface. Mesozoic and Tertiary denudation surfaces and sediments dominate in the south and reveal the sequence of events later in the Phanerozoic.
