A new approach to the problem of measuring microtopographical changes on vertical limestones in the intertidal zone, simple and cost-effective, is discussed. It is based on the positioning of a rock removable slab (RRS) in the intertidal zone. The RRS method allows to use the traversing micro erosion meter (TMEM) on vertical rock surfaces, temporarily removing the slab from the operating position, so that measurements can be collected horizontally. Sources of errors and preliminary results, besides the limits and applicability of the method, are discussed. The AA. have tested the RRS method in the Gulf of Trieste, on a micro-tidal rock coast, collecting data from 7 stations
