Simple linear regression is used to interpret erosion rates on two shore platforms from the Kaikoura Peninsula, South Island, New Zealand. Using this analysis it is suggested that measured rates could be viewed as representatives of populations of erosion rates moving about a changing fitness landscape. The potential of such a view for understanding erosion rates is outlined.
