Proceedings: Allowable microclimatic variations for polychrome wood (2010)

Title: Allowable microclimatic variations for polychrome wood
Reference: International Workshop, 18-19 February 2010, Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research - NIKU, Oslo
Link: http://www.heritagescience.pl/...

The workshop is a joint event of the research project “Establishing standards for allowable microclimatic variations for polychrome wood” implemented by the Institute of Catalysis and Surface Chemistry, Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow and the Norwegian Institute for Cultural Heritage Research in Oslo, and COST Action IE0601 “Wood Science for Conservation of Cultural Heritage”. The project is supported by a grant from Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway through the European Economy Area Financial Mechanism.
