Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to measure and map weathering rates for a single tombstone type (century-old Vermont marble slabs), and to use spatial correlation to indicate the relative importance of various marble deterioration processes. The results at 320 cemeteries throughout North America and Hawaii demonstrate that air pollution (probably SO[2]) has been responsible for more deterioration of carbonate building stone and statuary than have other weathering processes
