Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

At the end of the course the student will acquire the basic knowledge of atmospheric chemical interactions on cultural properties resulting from past and present airborne pollution; connections between atmospheric composition, its historical evolution into a polluted environment as well as temporal trends will; links between a changing atmospheric chemistry and climate. Special focus will be given to ambient particulate matter and to its physico-chemical characterization in indoor and outdoor conditions, including its interactions with the gaseous phase and the resulting degradation over exposed heritage materials.


Composition of the atmosphere under natural and polluted conditions - Evolution of atmospheric composition in the course of time, environmental archives - Connection between air composition, air quality and climate - outdoor and indoor environments - reactive species in the air : acids and bases; oxidants; complexing agents - role of biogeochemistry - interactions with materials in artistic manufacts
