This volume is the outcome of SWAPNET '99 held at the University of Wolverhampton, May 1999. It covers a wide range of subject material related to stone weathering, including methods of measuring weathering rates, geochemical interactions on natural stone, weathering experiments on stone blocks, the impact of pollutants on buildings, the effects of stone cleaning and computer modelling of stone decay. The 16 chapters have been reviewed by researchers in this specialist field. The book aims to examine the chemical and biological processes involved in stone deterioration in urban environments, to provide appropriate field survey and modelling techniques so that soiling and weathering of buildings can be monitored and to provide case studies with a variety of current research techniques.
