A Practical, Quantitative Approach to Conservation Methodology What can be done about the harmful effects of industrial pollutants on carbonate stone monuments, buildings, and sites? Here is an important guide to this phenomenon of the twentieth century. Written by two conservation technology experts with an intimate knowledge of the restoration of major world monuments, Carbonate Stone: Chemical Behavior, Durability, and Conservation covers:
- Properties of carbonate rocks affecting the weathering of stone
- Weathering mechanisms in polluted and natural environments, plus biodeterioration
- Mathematical modeling for reaction rates and durability factors
- The use of porosimetry in determining rock durability
- Conservation methodologies from the real world
- The theory of neural networks and their application to correlate large volumes of chemical and physical data
- Application of archaeology to geochronology
