Recent investigations into mechanical weathering in cold environments have highlighted products similarities to those of hot deserts. Although general temperature conditions between these two settings are obviously different on the basis of absolute air temperatures, the zonality with respect to thermal changes affecting the rock is less apparent. Data are presented here from four diverse environmental settings with particular emphasis on the fluctuating temperature regime as applicable to rock… CONTINUE READING
