Abstract

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
