Mission:

The Center for Marine Materials is dedicated to 1) understanding the mechanisms whereby materials deteriorate in marine environments, 2) developing means for reducing and preventing such deterioration, and 3) promoting transfer of developed technologies for integrity retention to the private sector. Although corrosion of materials in marine environments has been estimated to cost approximately one percent of the GNP per annum, the Center is the only stand-alone academic unit in the country that focuses exclusively upon marine materials.
