One of the longest standing debates in rocky coast geomorphology is whether subaerial weathering or wave processes dominate shore platform evolution. The origins of this debate date to the mid-nineteenth century when the first descriptions of Old Hat Islands were provided from northern New Zealand. The aim of this study is to provide quantitative data on platform geometry (topographical surveying and Schmidt Hammer hardness testing were conducted on >25 profiles of varying wave exposure) thereby providing a basis to reconsider, alongside more recent literature, some of the original discussion of the evolution and morphology of Old Hat Island shore platforms
