FIGURE 12.9 Weathering of this intrusive igneous boulder is causing granular disintegration, as evidenced by the numerous individual mineral grains collecting around its base.

What other evidence exists on the boulder to suggest that it has been subjected to considerable weathering?

To determine

The other evidence that exists on the boulder to suggest that it has been subjected to considerable weathering.

Explanation

The extreme diurnal changes in temperature are common in deserts weather rocks physically by the process of expansion and contraction that are resulting from heating and cooling. The wide occurrence of split rocks in arid regions can be considered as evidence of its effectiveness. The mechanical splitting of rocks occurs due to alternative heating and cooling. The removal of individual grains of minerals from a rock also occurs due to the differential thermal expansion and contraction of individual mineral grains in the coarse crystalline rock...
