Description :
Rock weathering as relative-age indicators are tested on rock surfaces of generally known chronological sequence on Marion island in the sub-Antarctic. While the weathering characteristics could not establish any chronosequence in the relict glacial rock surfaces the techniques can resolve relative ages in the primarily Holocene post-glacial rock surfaces. - (AJC)
