1st Heritage Webinar

Effective Modelling in Heritage Science

Although a range of models have been used in heritage science, practical uptake and utilisation has often been rather limited. We plan a special issue that will present a range of heritage models designed to serve as input to practice.

Heritage sites and objects are shaped by their environment. Investigating interactions between heritage and its surroundings is important for processes of change and informing management decisions. Process-based models can provide a tool for exploring the effect of environmental change. Such work should contribute to better practice in heritage science and practical conservation; and optimally encourage a two-way exchange of understanding between research and practice. However, within the heritage field modelling is not as commonly applied as might be expected.

The Webinar will give contributors the change to see the emerging shape of the special issue and help to plan their MS. We hope that participants will be able to talk about the way their ideas would contribute to effective heritage models.

Prof Peter Brimblecombe was born in Australia and went to university in Auckland, New Zealand completing a PhD atmospheric chemistry. He spent some four decades at the School of Environmental Sciences, University of East Anglia led to research on long-term changes in urban air pollution and effects on health and buildings. He has written a number of books perhaps most notably the historical work, The Big Smoke. In recent years he has shifted focus to environmental issues in Asia working at City University of Hong Kong and National Sun Yat-Sen University in Taiwan.
