STECCI Stone monument ensembles and the climate change impact | Horizon Europe
(Promo Film TBD)

News And Events

How it works

Climate Scenarios GIS Digital Atlas

Using the most recent IPCC AR6, two reference climate scenarios (spatial resolution of 10 x 10 km will be used to develop GRIDs format) for the European continent will be developed in the form of an interactive GIS STECCI Climate Atlas, along with an air pollution impact database.

Preservation Guideline Developing

Assessing the degree of decay of stone sacral structures in two different reference climate scenarios for Preservation Guidelines. The systematic and scientifically based Guidelines will apply to steci and other limestone monuments in EU in the two climate scenarios.

Assesment of Monument Condition

Ultrasound pulse velocity (UPV), reflectance transformation imaging (RTI) and the Karsten tube, electron microscopy (SEM-EDS), Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD). Biodeterioration will be assessed using microscopic analyses.

New Methodolgy/Cultural Heritage Impact

Development of new techniques to protect natural stones CaLoSiL® nano-lime products. This project will emphasize both shared cultural heritage values and climate environmental issues as a means of reducing and preventing social and political radicalism in a formerly war-torn region.
