About this book

The hazard posed to engineering structures by salt weathering is an increasing one because of such diverse factors such as the spread of irrigation and high levels of atmospheric pollution. Salt weathering is also a potent cause of rock decay and geomorphological change in polar, coastal and desert environments.
