Short summary
In this paper we present the corrosion/soiling results obtained from the analysis of different kind of materials that were exposed in Athens during the period 2003–2012. According to these results, the corrosion/soiling of the particular exposed materials tend to decrease over the years, except for the case of copper. Based on this long experimental database, applicable to multi-pollutant situation of the Athens basin, we present newly developed dose–response functions (DRFs).
