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

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)


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
