Abstract

Engineering geological observations and measurements were carried out in road-cut excavations in a migmatitic Precambrian belt in southern Finland. Both the degree of weathering and the fracture frequency observed on the natural exposed surfaces were less than those observed on the excavated rock faces. The paper draws attention to the necessity for caution when making inferences on the likely fracture spacing and weathering based on rock outcrops.
