Humidity and Temperature Monitoring

There are four monitors setup at various locations in the fossil house. They measure temperature and humidity every 15 minutes. We are using these data along with local weather data and times of water ingress to build up model of the water movements to help us develop a suitable temperature and humidity regime for the building. Humidity is generall very high (close to 100%) except in dryer periods in better weather. This high humidity is damaging the building structure and results in condensation which drips onto the fossil floor – forming ‘tramlines’ of water on the floor under the main beams. Salt are forming along these lines which are damaging the fossils.
