In profiles from the coast to the interior, starting from Nantes, Santiago de Compostela, Naples and Heraklion, the decreasing effect of seasalt on limestone monuments will be evaluated, via measurements of atmospheric seasalt deposition, salt content in weathering crusts and physical characteristics of the stone. Laboratory simulations will be carried out. The efficiency of protecting agents will be studied.
