Enhanced bedrock weathering in association with late-lying snowpatches : evidence from Livingston Island, Antarctica

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

Abstract

An indication of the extent of weathering on different aspects of rock outcrops on Livingston Island, Antarctica, was obtained by means of a Schmidt hammer, a cone indenter and measurement of weathering rind thickness. Results show that weathering, particularly chemical weathering, is enhanced on the lee side of outcrops where snow accumulates as a result of prolonged wetting by the melting snow
