  • corrosion monitoring, measurements performed - under industrial or practical operating conditions;
  • modern corrosion monitoring technologies, and highly time-dependent nature of corrosion processes - direct and indirect corrosion measurement techniques;
  • corrosion monitoring systems, varying in complexity - simple coupon exposures, or hand-held data loggers, fully integrating plant process surveillance units
