A study of the site and its surroundings indicates that the geochemical environment is such that although the aeolian calcarenite on which the engravings are executed is soft and friable, it is not undergoing appreciable chemical or physical weathering, at least in the short-term. In contrast the site is under considerable threat from coastal erosion. This threat could be reduced, if not eliminated, through the implementation of coastal erosion control measures.
