The surface stone mantles typical of dryland hillslopes are the focus of this work. Because the stones on dryland slopes are often only a veneer over finer-textured materials, true volumetric sampling is not possible and any method that is adopted must be surface-based. Grid sampling thus appears attractive, but results presented here suggest that the method is only suitable if adequate bias correction is applied
