The ‘ICP on effects on materials’ was launched in 1985, within the framework of the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution with the aim to find an approach for clearing the main gaps in the knowledge about material degradation caused by environmental impacts. The project was organized as a staggered8 year's material exposure programme accompanied by an extensive measuring programme for environmental parameters. During the evaluation of the 4 years data set it took shape that the… 
Mapping Atmospheric Corrosion on Modern Materials in the Greater Athens Area
In this study, we investigate the corrosion effects on modern materials at various sheltered and unsheltered locations in the Greater Athens Area (GAA) due to atmospheric pollution, since materials
Impact of air pollution on outdoor cultural heritage objects and decoding the role of particulate matter: a critical review
Atmospheric gases and particulate matter (PM) in contact with the material’s surface lead to chemical and physical changes, which in most cases cause degradation of the cultural heritage material.
Atmospheric corrosion and runoff processes on copper and zinc as roofing materials
An extensive investigation with parallel field andlaboratory exposures has been conducted to elucidateatmospheric corrosion and metal runoff processes on copper andzinc used for roofing applications.
Damage Functions and Mechanism Equations Derived from Limestone Weathering in Field Exposure
In this article damage functions and mechanism equations areelaborated for Massangis limestone, exposed to ambientatmospheric conditions. Limestone slabs were placed in fivedifferent environments in
Corrosion of ancient Chinese bronze money trees studied by Raman microscopy
Raman microscopy was used to identify corrosion products and their locations on and within samples from ancient Chinese bronze money trees to help determine the corrosive environments the trees
