Abstract

This paper presents an initial attempt to quantify the progressive development of varnish coats over time by measuring the amount of Mn accumulated in varnish collected from geomorphic surfaces of different ages. The data demonstrate that rock varnish can show significant spatial variation in degree of development on geomorphic surfaces of similar age, and imply that collecting varnish as old as a geomorphic surface may be difficult on surfaces as young as late Pleistocene
