What is a Micro-Climate?

The dictionary definition of a micro-climate is: the climate of a small, specific place within an area as contrasted with the climate of the entire area. Here we create air tight cases that regulate the climate in a specific volume around an artifact.

A micro climate is generally the condition inside an enclosed space, insofar as it differs in temperature, humidity and air cleanliness from the surrounding ambient.

Some examples of micro-climates are:
a hospital operating room
a clean room
a green house
a museum display case or storage room

With regards to humidity, the required parameters for a museum display case are a constant, non-cycling level of relative humidity that is maintained within the conservator’s set parameters.
