European salt damage conservation network

Objective

The preservation of cultural (art) objects and buildings is central to our quality of life. A major cause of damage is the growth of salt crystals within porous materials such as stone and plaster resulting in desegregation and loss of the object surface. However, crystal formation can now be predicted by state-of-the- art geochemical (computer) models, and safe environmental conditions identified. Our objective is to improve conservation practice, Europe wide, for historical stonework and cultural objects affected by salt damage.

This will be achieved using the world wide web to:
i) promote, teach, and apply advanced models for predicting the conditions leading to salt damage;
ii) organise and coordinate user groups focussing on conservation problems. Network outputs will be improved and innovative conservation strategies, increased collaboration between researchers, practitioners and decision-makers, and stimulation of new research.
