We've posted about unsightly #biofilm on marble buildings in the past.

Now there is an opportunity to learn about the treatment and abatement of the biofilm on the Memorial Amphitheater at Arlington National Cemetery (Carrere & Hastings, architect, 1920) and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial (John Russell Pope, architect, 1943).

Presenters and HABS program supporters Audrey Tepper and Rebecca L. Stevens, AIA, will explore the scientific process involved in the identification and analysis of #biofilm, as well as the advantages and challenges of the two different treatment methods utilized, and the importance of post-treatment analysis and long-term monitoring.
