Managing Environment of Preserving
It refers to all the measures taken to extend the lifespan of the cultural heritage. Environmental and biological factors that damage the cultural heritage are monitored, and the cultural heritage is managed stably through preventive conservation from inspection of the nearby environment.
The institute currently monitors the conservation environment of the exhibit hall for relics including Korea’s first excavated treasure ship, the Sinan Shipwreck, and various preventive measures are conducted including the control of temperature and humidity, the illumination measurement, the harmful gas inspection, the fumigation treatment, and the instalment of insect traps, etc. Not only this, but research is being conducted to prevent damage to the cultural heritage, including research on chromaticity measurements, photography, pH measurements, etc. Thus, to achieve the value of conserving the cultural heritage in its original form, knowledge from various fields such as material engineering, environmental engineering, chemistry, biology, etc. are required, along with arranging an appropriate conservation environment.
