prevents deterioration. BUILDING MATERIALS Aggregate is crushed stone, <span class="highlight">sand</span>, and gravel (small, naturally loose pieces of rock). Asphalt is a mixture of <span class="highlight">sand</span> and a liquid product refined from crude oil, combined with aggregate. Brick is a baked mixture of <span class="highlight">sand</span>, clay, and water. Cement is a fine, gray powder that is made by firing clay and limestone in a kiln.

further fracturing. Some chemical weathering is a consequence of acids produced by living things growing on the rock. The deterioration of structures such as bridges and statues has increased dramatically in the last few decades, how- ever, because of chemical changes that produce acid rain. Pollution from automobiles and industrial plants adds sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide, and other gasses to the natural carbon dioxide in the air. 4 <span class="highlight">Sand</span> is used in glass, concrete, asphalt, bricks, and the mortar that holds

This close-up view of the base of a marker shows flaking and chipping caused by physical weathering. 10 This sandstone tablet is disappearing because of chemical weathering.The mineral calcite, which holds the quartz <span class="highlight">sand</span> grains together, dissolves away. The loosened <span class="highlight">sand</span> accumulates at the marker&rsquo;s base. If acidic precipitation continues to damage the stone, only a pile of loose red <span class="highlight">sand</span> will remain. Leanne Wiberg Leanne Wiberg
