Description:

To prepare for the exercise, students research the climate of their own area, including average temperature, rainfall, and climate to learn whether weathering (primarily chemical) has a major impact in their area. They also must understand which rock types are susceptible to chemical weathering and why. Correct identification of rocks is essential for accurate interpretation, and gives intro students experience outside of hand samples in lab.
