The monitoring of environmental conditions within corporate collections at Keyworth and Murchison House : 2004

By Paul Shepherd and Graham J. Tulloch


This report presents the environment data gathered during the calendar year 2004 in the\ud storerooms for the British Geological Survey’s Corporate Collections Archives.\ud The report follows the pattern laid down in the first in the series, released in 2004, The\ud Monitoring of Environmental Conditions within Corporate Collections at Keyworth and\ud Murchison House 2002-03, with comparisons made between data collected in pervious years\ud to assess the benefits or otherwise of modifications to either working practices or the fabric\ud of the building.\ud The data are discussed in chapters 2 and 3 where they are also illustrated in graphical\ud format. A full copy of the data is contained on the accompanying compact disk, together\ud with an Adobe Acrobat format version of this report.\ud We will discuss the factors that affect the temperature and humidity of the storerooms,\ud including the duration and number of workers present in the room, heating cycles of the\ud building and external influences such as variations in the weather, from temperature and\ud precipitation to the direction of the wind.\ud Alterations to working practices and improvements in the fabric of the stores over the period\ud of reporting will also be discussed. Possible future modifications are identified, however\ud these are made in a controlled manner to allow changes in the environment to be assessed
