Abstract: A system is proposed whereby factors conducive to corrosion acceleration in and near seabeds are quantified so that maps can be generated outlining zones with high corrosivity or otherwise. Characteristics of seabeds as to natural and artificial changes conducive to added corrosion attack on pipeline steels are described. Attention is given to the consequences of biological attack, which is enhanced by high temperatures, organic content of water N and P concentrations, sediment stability, sea flow patterns, and their alteration by manmade impediments. A table of point factors is presented which permits establishing the probable corrosivity of seabed sediments by weighing the parameters involved. Variable spacing and changing anode metals is recommended as a means of offsetting possible accelerated attack.
