Contrasting weathering rates in coastal, urban and rural areas in southern Britain : preliminary investigations using gravestones

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



All sites exhibit similar amounts and variations in rainfall over the study period for which gravestone measurements are available. Comparison of mean weathering rates suggested that the coastal urban site of Clacton had a similar weathering rate to the nearby coastal rural site. The other urban sites of Oxford, Lodge Hill and Portsmouth had similar weathering rates, despite their diverse locations and histories. The inland rural site had a significantly lower mean weathering rate than any other site. Analysis of covariance confirms that there are similarities between some sites. A linear regression of depth of loss against age adequately describes the relationship over the study period
