Abstract

Laboratory experiments are described that examined the effectiveness of certain naturally occurring combinations of salts as weathering agents. Cubes of a highly quartzose sandstone were repeatedly soaked in one of a series of salt solutions and then oven-dried to simulate natural weathering. The results indicate that is difficult to predict the weathering behaviour of combinations of salts from the weathering behaviour of the salts individually. Possible causes of enhanced weathering by some combined salt solutions are discussed
