his subject examines the physical and chemical causes of deterioration of cultural material, and considers how these can be effectively mitigated. Areas of study include light exposure, fluctuations and extremes of temperature and relative humidity, physical stresses, biological attack, and pollutants. Students will critically evaluate current theories and international standards and guidelines for the management of internal museum environment. The interaction and impact of these factors will be studied from the perspective of the museum environment and the building envelope. The context and opportunities for the implementation of a preventive conservation approach within an overall risk management framework will be emphasised, including environmental impact, budgetary implications, sustainability, and stakeholder management.
