Abstract

The weathering of a Late Miocene gypsum-calcareous mudstone outcropping in large badland areas of SE Spain, under a semi-arid Mediterranean climate, was studied by means of 2 experimental approaches using both laboratory and field-based techniques. Weathering rates were found to be proportional to the number of rainfall events during the sampling periods, confirming what was found in laboratory conditions, namely, that the number of wetting-drying cycles has the greatest influence on weathering
