Abstract

Various aspects of the granite destruction in urban environments were studied in cities of Northern Europe (Russia and Finland). Granite is commonly used to create monuments, buildings, and embankments. Rock degradation is associated with physical, chemical, and biological factors. In this chapter, the main forms of granite destruction are described and a classification of biofouling granite is developed. Features of granite biological colonization were established. Rapakivi granite is most strongly subjected to damage by abiotic weathering processes as well as biological colonization, which can be explained by the peculiarities of the mineral composition and texture of this type of rock.
