INFLUENCE OF ENVIRONMENT ON CORROSION AND CATHODIC PROTECTION

The influence of environmental conditions upon rates of metal corrosion in seawater is discussed, taking into account both mechanical and electrochemical factors. Two types of cathodic protection systems are described--galvanic anode systems; and impressed-current systems. Cook Inlet, Alaska, and Lake Maracaibo are described as representing extreme conditions as compared with the Gulf of Mexico, which is used as the "norm".
