Model for multi-pollutant impact and assessment of threshold levels for cultural heritage

Objective

Multi-pollutant effects of S and N compounds, ozone, HNO3 and particles on deterioration and soiling of cultural heritage objects will be assessed with the aim to propose threshold levels for areas deserving special protection to be included in future EU Directives on urban air quality. The results will be presented at a workshop to a users reference group including specialists within the field, potential stake-holders like representatives of EU DG Environment, EEA, the UN ECE LRTAP Convention, national heritage bodies, WHO, the UNESCO World Heritage Committee and authorities of the cities included in the study. The threshold levels will be assessed using dose-response functions developed within the project. They are of outmost importance, for mapping of areas with increased risk of deterioration, for calc. of cost of damage caused by corrosion and soiling of materials, and for development of strategies for future reduction of pollution.
