* Basic principles of atmospheric corrosion chemistry
* Corrosion mechanisms in controlled and uncontrolled environments
* Degradation of materials in architectural and structural applications, electronic devices, and cultural artifacts
* Protecting existing materials and choosing new ones that resist corrosion
* Predicting how and where atmospheric corrosion may evolve in the future
Complete with appendices discussing experimental techniques, computer models, and the degradation of specific metals, Atmospheric Corrosion is an invaluable resource for corrosion scientists, corrosion engineers, conservators, environmental scientists, and anyone interested in the theory and application of this evolving field.
