Abstract

This paper deals with the metrological issue of the reliability in measurements. The evaluation of intermediate precision is discussed to assure repeatable data over time. As an example, the monitoring process of archaeological or historic discoveries needs that data coming from different measurements and performed in different time instants are comparable and traceable. Thermography is used here to evaluate the conservation state of metallic artefacts and their decay over time. Data on the integrity of an ancient iron oil lamp have been collected at different points in time. Intermediate precision has been computed to evaluate the data reliability so to guarantee the comparability of data. The proposed approach can allow getting accurate and consistent information on the discovery decay over time. Intermediate precision evaluation provides quantitative information about the effectiveness of the monitoring process and the reliability of its results.
