The operation of a ship involves many of the technologies required for the functioning of an urban society: generation of electric power; storage and preparation of food; dispensing of health services; furnishing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning; and in some instances operating nuclear power plants and aircraft. Thus, the corrosion control measures needed in the marine industry include many that have been developed for other industries unassociated with the marine environment. In addition, special measures are required because of the special corrosive nature of sea air and seawater. It is these specialized measures which form the subject of this chapter. (For example, corrosion control measures for steam generation are not discussed because the subject is included in the chapter on that technology.)
