Cover: Teaching Electrochemistry through Corrosion

Corrosion is a major concern for all seagoing vessels and represents the single greatest maintenance cost to U.S. military assets and civilian infrastructure. In , Richard W. Sanders, Gregory L. Crettol, Joseph D. Brown, Patrick T. Plummer, Tara M. Schendorf, Alex Oliphant, Susan B. Swithenbank, Robert F. Ferrante, and Joshua P. Gray describe a laboratory exercise demonstrating the different types of corrosion, the electrochemistry involved, and common methods of preventing corrosion.
