Abstract

Relative legibility of dated inscriptions is closely associated with measured surface recessions for 3895 Vermont marble tombstones, and the resulting ordinal-to-ratio transfer function allows weathering rates to be computed for many exposed rock surfaces that cannot be measured by more accurate methods. Case studies demonstrate applications of the technique
