As part of an international program investigating the effect of air pollution on stone monuments, a field study was conducted at the Bowling Green Customs House in New York City. The study included monitoring of gaseous and particulate air pollutants, and meteorological variables, around the building. In addition, several alternative methods for monitoring air pollution were tested. Effect of air pollution was studied on limestone, marble and sandstone. Dissolution of marble in rainfall was also investigated. This report provides background and description of the project. Data and analysis will be presented in subsequent reports.
