The action of air pollution and environmental conditions on the weathering of historical monuments has been investigated for the site of the Demeter Sanctuary (1500 BC) in Eleusis, Greece. Total deposition and aerosols were analysed in relation to the concentration of elements in the various types of weathered stone crusts. The objective of the study was the evaluation of the origin of the elements and ions determined in aerosols and total deposition and to relate these to possible sources (soil, underlying rock, marine spray and anthropogenic activities) using enrichment factors.
