Abstract

Using a combination of field, laboratory and micromorphological evidence, this study examines tafoni in the El Chorro area of Andalucia, and makes inference concerning the processes responsible for their formation. 25 tafoni were randomly selected for field examination. A phased model of tafone evolution is proposed whereby the features pass through 4 phases of development-initiation, enlargement, amalgamation and degradation; in the study area there are examples of tafoni in each of these phases. Much of the evidence suggests that the tafoni are actively developing under current environmental conditions
