2015-07-16 Romania: Increase of Biological Risk Induced by Climate Change on Heritage Sites Preservation (iBRICS)


 Increase of Biological Risk Induced by Climate Change on Heritage Sites Preservation (iBRICS)

Description of the project offered: 
Cultural heritage is an important component of our existence and its decay is clearly affecting our future development in terms of individual and collective identity, as well as from an economical perspective.

The impact of temperature and humidity change on the preservation conditions for cultural artefacts is usually evaluated at limited levels through small scale studies on the microclimate in museums and archives.

The scope of the present project is to identify the long term impact that the climate change at a global level can have on the cultural heritage sites and artefacts which are directly affected by external climacteric factors.

The project will be concerned with researching the impact of climatic change in the evolution of biofilm on cultural artefacts and on the vegetation around cultural heritage sites, as well as the physical impact of rough climatic conditions on them. A portal providing support for collection, storage and comparative analysis of climatic data impact and a dedicated method or sensor to be attached to smartphones to provide information about climate conditions (temperature, humidity, CO2) around cultural heritage sites will be developed.
