    A review of the state-of-the-art of microbiology influenced corrosion (MIC) testing in the early 1990s. Many industrial needs in the area of MIC testing are identified in these papers along with the latest laboratory and field testing techniques. Strategies to monitor and control corrosion and biofouling in water distribution systems, underground pipelines, buildings, and marine vessels are discussed. From this a consensus emerges on how to evaluate and reliably simulate microbiological factors in real systems and laboratory tests.

    21 peer-reviewed papers in 6 chapters:

    • Electrochemical Methods

    • On-Line Monitoring Methods

    • Surface Analysis

    • SRB Characterization
