To introduce physical quantities and processes which control the state and the dynamical evolution of the atmosphere surrounding objects of historical, artistic, cultural interest. The focus will be (1) on the effects of the variability of temperature, humidity, radiation, air pollution on cultural heritage and (2) on the monitoring techniques of micro-meteorology.
Expected learning outcomes
Ability to read technical and scientific texts about measuring instruments, monitoring procedures, data analysis, physical processes related to the interaction of cultural heritage with surrounding atmosphere. Ability to recognize the effects of microclimate and air quality on the cultural heritage.
