ABSTRACT
Defines the measures necessary to control microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) in new buried steel pipeline construction that is in a high risk category for this type of attack. Metabolic cycle of sulfate reducing bacteria; Importance of understanding the behavior of micro-organisms in natural waters and soils; Occurrence of MIC in water-clogged clays; Methods of prevention.
