The vast areas of the Precambrian shield of Finland, Sweden and Norway belong to a still larger entity termed Fennoscandia, which also comprises the Scandes (Caledonian Highlands) (see Chapter 7). The geomorphology of the Shield in Finland, Sweden and Norway is considered in Section 5.1. Areas—Soviet Karelia and the Kola peninsula—outside these three countries also belong to the Shield: these regions are dealt with later in this chapter (see Section 5.2).
