About this title


The seventh volume is this popular series, this book assesses the effect of air pollutant exposure on works of art. A mathematical model is developed combining the description of a building and the effects of ventilation, filtration, deposition onto surfaces, and direct emission from all pollutants. The model is then applied to actual indoor air quality problems in several Southern California museums. The authors contend that if the measures suggested in the book are applied, airborne particulates can be reduced by at least two orders of magnitude.
