[M-IS02] Conservation of geoparks, natural geosites and cultural heritage: weathering process and damage assessment
Mon. May 21, 2018 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall7, Makuhari Messe)

Geoparks, natural geosites and cultural geo-heritage are recognized as an important natural and cultural properties. Due to long years of suffering from weathering of rocks and earthen materials, they are often facing deterioration problems and somehow treatments or conservations might be necessary. Investigation from wide range of research fields such as geomorphology, engineering geology, geoarchaeology, conservation of cultural properties, petrophysics, geochemistry, geotechnical engineering, etc, however, our knowledge of many aspects of these materials is still limited. Here in this session, we accept discussions on original researches and case studies of documentation, measurement and monitoring techniques, experiments, predictive models, damage assessments, etc. We welcome papers from any kinds of research fields.
