Weathering of coastal defensive structures in southwest England : a 500 year stone durability trial

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Several structures of Henrician (sixteenth century) and greater age on the coast of southwest England have been exposed to coastal salt weathering for 500-600 years. Long-term weathering rates on 5 different rock groups are derived from careful study of weathering depths and forms. Rank ordering of weathering rate values reveals a durability order of these rock groups. Specific density, and combined quartz and muscovite content, are positively related to durability; high feldspar and chlorite content are associated with low durability
