Here is a practical book that will help any person dealing with the insidious corrosion problems commonly caused by sea water. The book constitutes a review containing carefully excerpted and collated data from diverse and difficult-to-locate sources. The technological information to be found here is based on the results of studies conducted by research teams from U.S. Naval Research Labs plus others under the auspices of government agencies.

The first chapter is really an overview and deals with the general aspects concerning the metal corrosion occurring in marine environments, while the second chapter deals with the corrosion at different sea depths and is from Technical Report R834 and the third chapter treats the effects of microorganisms. Material contained in this chapter has been elaborated from the content of three reports - a preprint of a scientific paper entitled "Bio-fouling and Effects of Organic Compounds and Microorganisms on Corrosion Processes", the "Corrosion at 4'500 Ft Depth in Tongue-of-the-Ocean", and the "Influence of Marine Organisms on the Life of Structural Steels in Seawater". The fourth chapter is an annotated bibliography containing meaningful abstracts referring to metal corrosion.

Special techniques are used to close the gap between "manuscript" and "completed book." Technological progress is so rapid that time-honored, conventional typesetting, binding and shipping methods are no longer suitable. We have bypassed the delays in the conventional book publishing cycle and provide the user with an effective and convenient means of reviewing up-to-date information in depth.
