ScopeNatural and cultural heritages are recognized to important geosites such as geopark or historical important 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.
