Pagination or Media Count:
Stainless steel and glass substrates were exposed to Biscayne Bay Florida seawater for several months. Samples were removed at regular intervals and examined for periphytic microorganisms by scanning electron microscopy and by microbiological culture techniques. The purpose of this study is to search for a possible relationship between microbial fouling and corrosion in the marine environment.
