Fire suppression in many island countries with scarce fresh water
sources relies on sea water.  How does one deal with salt water
damage?  We have the added problems of high temperatures and
humidity contributing to rapid mould growth; and in developing
nations, a scarcity of funds and local conservation experience.

Can you suggest any sources or resources for information about
disaster recovery from sea water for: damp, wet and saturated
paper records, books and archival files, and photographic records?

What are the effects of sea water and recovery methods for plastic
based materials and metal oxide recording layers?
