    This paper covers the use of cathodic protection in saline muds and soils to protect steel and aluminum structures such as tanks and piping. The history of this type of corrosion control in the Carribean Islands is covered, as well as developments over time in this part of the world. The conditions encountered with saline muds and sands are unique to these areas and lend themselves to specialized application of galvanic and impressed current corrosion control.
