Abstract

Temporal changes in colour, mineralogical, chemical, physical and mechanical properties due to weathering during 350,000 years were examined using sandstone gravel in fluvial terrace deposits with a known emergence time which were distributed in the Miyazaki Plain, South Kyushu. The results suggest that leaching of matrix and increasing pore volume plays a major role in the weathering of sandstone
