Abstract

This paper investigates the concept of frequency and magnitude firstly in the context of a range of important, frequently studied weathering processes (e.g. solution, fire, thermoclasty, haloclasty, frost, and biological weathering) and their effectiveness in terms of rock breakdown, and secondly in terms of the totality of weathering and its effectiveness in terms of larger-scale geomorphological change.Finally, the importance of the ideas of frequency and magnitude as applied to weathering in today's geomorphology is examined
