Abstract

This paper is about the character and origin of honeycombs and related patterned weathering depressions that are exposed along 5 km of the Tuscan coast, south of Livorno. The AA measured the geometry of 551 honeycomb cells and examined various rock properties (microscopic texture and fabric, mineralogy, porosity, permeability, and chemical composition) to isolate factors that control the size, shape, distribution, and pattern of the honeycombs. The AA. propose 2 types of honeycombs : typical honeycombs and aberrant honeycombs that have polygonal or irregular shape
