Monitoring Techniques for Microbial Influenced Corrosion (MIC)
The most common occurrence of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is in oil and gas-associated transportation and storage systems. However, MIC is also relevant to the municipal sector and includes water and wastewater systems. Even infrastructure in residential and commercial buildings such as sprinkler systems can be affected by MIC.
