Abstract : Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) is localized corrosion and results in pitting, crevice corrosion, selective dealloying, stress corrosion cracking, or under-deposit corrosion. Since MIC does not produce unique forms of corrosion, investigators have relied on the shape, color, smell, and morphology of surface deposits in association with numbers and types of organisms to indicate MIC.
