Enthusiast

Quite technical

Event Description

Scotland’s climate is changing at an unprecedented rate, with altering patterns of precipitation and an increasing frequency of unpredictable and extreme weather events.

Since the 1960s, annual precipitation has increased by over 20%. 

This has had serious implications for decay processes in the built environment. 

You will learn how conservation science can help to detect and monitor the moisture in buildings. 

This seminar will highlight research into the impact of soluble salts, the biodeterioration processes and the behaviour of moisture following building refurbishments.

Please advise of any dietary or access requirements in advance. 

Please note: Booking essential.

Please note this event has been renamed. It was previously called Application of Science.
