Abstract

Short-term (1-30 months) weathering rates were obtained for steep cliffs of Cretaceous Ardingly Sandstone in southern England, using a new photographic method. There was no correlation with grain size, porosity, or mean surface temperature. Highest weathering rates were observed on south- and west-facing exposed cliffs. The results are discussed with reference to algal growth, climate, and wind direction
