Abstract

The rate of weathering of limestone tombstones has been studied in the city of Haifa, Israel. Measuring the relative height of lead lettering on tombstones with a micrometer and relating it to the age the inscription yields the rate of weathering. The rate of limestone weathering in Haifa was found to be 0.005 mm/year. It is suggested that an exponential curve is a better fit than a linear curve when relating weathering to time.
