Abstract

Fire in the natural environment is a widespread agent of geomorphological and biological change. Temperatures can exceed 1000°C. Laboratory simulation studies have established that temperature changes which are representative of natural fires affect rock material properties, which can then be related to weathering susceptibility. A range of rock types were collected from the island of Cyprus. The rate of rock disintegration and effects such as case-hardening appear to be a function of rock thermal characteristics, material properties and environmental constraints such as diurnal temperature range
