Special Issue Information
Cultural heritages are non-renewable resources with significant historical, artistic and scientific value. For collections that are preserved in closed cabins or showcases in museums, air-quality-related risks are the primary causes of damage to artefacts. Appropriate indoor air quality (IAQ), temperature, relative humidity (RH) and light conditions are very important for the preventive protection and preservation of artefacts in indoor displays. Unearthed, immovable heritage sites are preserved in situ where they were unearthed in order to maintain their original appearance. Their surrounding environment is usually a soil–air coupling complex, and many heritage sites are facing serious challenges from climate change, environmental pollution, human activities and salt weathering. The primary objectives of this Special Issue are to raise awareness of the urgent tasks that need to be carried out for cultural heritage conservation, provide a platform to share innovative interdisciplinary research and summarize the state of the art in cultural heritage preventive protection. Original and review research papers on the following topics are welcomed but not limited to:
(1) The environmental deterioration mechanism of cultural heritage;
(2) Advances in the techniques for the characterization of deterioration;
(3) Advanced environmental control strategies for cultural heritage;
(4) Environmental safety in cultural heritage conservation.
