Aims

Perform a quantitative evaluation (dose-response functions) of the effects of multi-pollutants such as S and N compounds, O3 and particles as well as climate parameters on the atmospheric corrosion and soiling of important materials, including materials used in objects of cultural heritage.

Describe and evaluate long-term corrosion and soiling trends attributable to atmospheric pollution in order to elucidate the environmental effects of pollutant reductions achieved under the Convention and in order to identify extraordinary environmental changes that result in unpredicted materials damage.

Use the results for policy purposes for the benefit of the Convention by i.a. mapping areas with increased risk of corrosion and soiling and for calculation of cost of damage caused by deterioration of materials.
