Abstract

Field experiments were carried out over a five year period with the aim of understanding contemporary weathering and erosional environments in the Sør Rondane Mountains, an Antarctic cold desert region. These include observations of 1) scaling from rockwalls, 2) disintegration of tuff blocks with or without saline solutions, and 3) abrasion of artificial walls by wind. Monitoring was also made of rock surface temperature and wind speed
