Corrosion rate data are given for several sets of metals and alloys exposed to the deep ocean environment off the coast of southern California at a depth of 5300 feet for 1064 days. The sets include some aluminum alloys stainless steels brasses and bronzes titanium alloys alloys containing nickel, chromium and other metals a nickel-copper alloy as well as sets of copper, lead and wrought iron. All specimens of six of these sets did not corrode at all. In some of the other sets there was relatively uniform corrosion up to rates of about 6 mgdm2day, but in others the individual specimens varied considerably in their corrosion rates.
