Abstract

3 dated structures up to 450 years in age display the effects of coastal weathering of the greenschist of which they are constructed. A variety of weathering form is present. The various topographic surfaces of the structures create variation in weathering environments and consequent weathering processes and rates. Weathering is enhanced by direct exposure to salt-bearing spray and by humid conditions, and apparently limited by direct exposure to solar radiation
