Literature in this bibliography was compiled over the past decade at the Getty Conservation Institute as a part of the TERRA project. The research component of this project involved the review of a very large body of literature. The prevalence of earthen architecture worldwide both past and present means that a great deal has been published on the subject in many languages and disciplinary fields. To address the conservation of earthen architecture has also meant that a thorough understanding of the nature of the materials involved is essential; this has necessitated a review of mineralogy, clay and soil science, chemistry, and the analytical techniques used in these fields. The deterioration mechanisms affecting earthen architecture also needed to be well understood. For that reason, the literature on biodeterioration, and wind and water erosion, as well as damage caused by salts and seismic activity, had to be reviewed in light of their effect on earthen structures.
