Whaowhia te kete mātauranga - Fill the basket with knowledge
By Gerhard Eggert
Saturated aqueous salt solutions (water containing the maximum amount of a salt soluble) have been used to create a fixed relative humidity (RH) in display cases. Museum handbooks from the ‘70s and ’80s—including those by Thomson or Stolow—devote some pages to their use. The last article on these salt solutions’ practical use appeared in 1991, and then there was nothing more. Why?
We are grateful to everyone who has helped make this year a success, and there are a lot of people to thank, from our volunteers, editors and organising committees to our funders and supporters, and our amazing members.
