Corrosion - Aqueous (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar


July 19-20, 2008


Colby-Sawyer College
New London, NH


Ashley M. Lucente & Jan Wielant

Meeting Description

Topics for the Corrosion: Aqueous GRS will complement the GRC theme of "Mechanisms, Methods and Models." This may include but is certainly not limited to: corrosion mechanisms that underlie long-term life prediction for nuclear waste storage; passivity and passivity breakdown; corrosion of implanted biomedical devices; atomistic, stochastic, or finite element modeling of electrochemical interfaces and corrosion processes; and novel characterization methods including scanning probe and synchrotron techniques. More information about the Corrosion: Aqueous GRS can be found at this web site.

This Gordon Research Seminar precedes the Gordon Research Conference on Aqueous Corrosion. Please note that each meeting has its own application and registration process.

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Corrosion - Aqueous" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
