Paper Abstract

To stop, or at least to reduce, the weathering of the stone surface its strength is often improved by treatments of different chemical composition. The uniform distribution of the treatment and the conservation of its integrity during the years are crucial factors for a good protection of the monument. As a consequence a technique which allows a remote mapping of the treatment and its characteristics would be very attractive. This paper describes the first experiments devoted to the use of fluorescence lidars in the monitoring of protective treatments on stone surface. Although further investigations are necessary the first results demonstrate the possibility of a detection and characterization of protective treatments by fluorescence lidars.
