This paper introduces a scientific application of networked computer technology composed of digital cameras, light sources and climatic sensors for studying the salt crystallization processes on the historic walls of the cathedral of Basel, Switzerland. Salt crystallizations can destroy walls including wall paintings. So far short-time behavior of salts on historical objects has not been monitored due to technical or financial limitations. Pervasive computing technology enables the real-time monitoring including remote control of the set-up and data transfer through Internet. This offers new possibilities in research, such as studies of short time behavior, analysis of digital movies and automated post-processing.
