Site: El objetivo de este Glosario es presentar una serie de términos utilizados corrientemente en los estudios sobre la alteración de las rocas como materiales de construcción y, en particular, en los de deterioración de las piedras de los monumentos... Dichos términos aluden a diferentes aspectos (procesos, fenómenos, mecanismos, etc.), aun cuando la mayor parte de ellos son de carácter descriptivo, y se refieren a estados y formas de alteración macroscópicas de las piedras, detectables a simple vista.

COMITÉ SCIENTIFIQUE INTERNATIONAL PIERRE, & VERGÈS-BELMIN, V. (2010). Illustrated glossary on stone deterioration patterns. Paris, ICOMOS. (ICOMOS) "The ISCS glossary constitutes an important tool for scientific discussions on decay phenomena and processes. It is also an excellent basis for tutorials on stone deterioration. It is based on the careful examination of pre-existing glossaries of English terms. It does not aim at replacing these glossaries, often set up originally in a language other than English, and for most of them done to a high standard." "The glossary is arranged into 6 families composed of 2 to 11 terms : General terms, Crack and deformation, Detachment, Features induced by material loss, Discoloration and deposit, Biological colonization."
