Microclimatic monitoring assessment of internal and external impacts, assessment of sustainability and environmental impact on patrimony materials

Project stages

Stage Description Activities

Assessing the climate and microclimate impact on the original model and substrates

Climate and microclimatic risk assessment: from the hot, cold season, from the transition seasons, those are possible throughout the year at regional level; Interconnecting the system of climatic risk phenomena at the level of the original archaeological substrates;
Evaluating environmental risk factors and the specific role of tested restored methods / materials for conservation;
Identification and systematization of the correlations between the physicochemical properties of the objects in the studied Romanian patrimony .


Identification of external environmental factors and priority interiors which affects the conservation conditions of patrimony materials

Systematic identification of a matrix of weather-climatic phenomenon, which can be generated at defined objectives of patrimony on different spatial and temporal resolutions;
Identification of indoor environmental factors, correlated with anthropogenic factors;
Making synoptic maps as the basis of the genetic-evolutionary analysis of meteo-climatic phenomena.


Identify the main damage processes related to environmental parameters

Systematization of the damage processes of the patrimony materials and causal interpretation of the influence of the climatic and microclimatic factors in the mitigation of these processes;
Non-significant / significant impact study per defined heritage objective; Case studies.


Performing measurements, autonomous installation of different environmental monitoring devices

Installation of meteorological station and climatic monitoring devices for specified periods (24 hours - 7 days / season / risk period) in the location of the selected heritage objectives and monitoring of some microclimate parameters;
Measurement of air quality around monitored heritage objectives, depending on the season (CO2 level, respirable dust, particulate matter, pollen, soot dust, negative ions, terrestrial and nuclear radiation, light intensity).

5 Characterization of nanostructured materials and historical materials through analytical techniques: ICP-MS, AAS, XRF, SEM-EDS, XRD, AFM, MO, FTIR, UV-VIS, Raman and Petrography Sampling and systematization of nanostructured material samples and original archaeological materials;
Composition analysis (AAS, ICP-MS, XRF, UV-VIS, FTIR, Raman, XRD), surface / layer morphology: optical microscopy, SEM, AFM, petrography etc.
