This paper presents Schmidt hammer (SH) measurements on intact and prepared surfaces in the Jizerské hory Mountains, Czech Republic. SH R-values were collected from granite outcrop surfaces and from vertical profiles below rock surface. The main aims of this study were (1) to verify the influence of surface grinding on the results of SH measurements; (2) to uncover how rock hardness changes with depth; and (3) to identify the age limitations of the SH dating technique
