Abstract

The effects of weathering in a Mediterranean climate on the mineralogy and microfabric of Paleozoic gneiss of the Sila Massif, Calabria, have been studied. Micromorphological and mineralogical properties of bedrock and saprolite show that the weathering process is characterized by at least 2 major stages, having 2 distinct rock microfabrics. The determination of quantitaive petrographic indices provides a measure of the various stages of weathering
