The result of heavy or excessive amounts of rainfall within a short period of time
- Water - eg from rainfall or melting snow and ice - becomes trapped in a crack or joint in the rock.

- The ice will melt when the temperature rises above freezing.
- If this process happens repeatedly, the rock will weaken and eventually shatter.
