Abstract : A system for detecting and measuring corrosive reaction of metals in an environment. The system includes: a remotely placeable sensor head containing a galvanic couple made of metals identical to those involved in the corrosion problem, with the couple coiled in the shape of a spiral; and, operatively associated electronic circuitry to amplify, integrate, and store in a non-volatile memory, e.g., a bubble type memory, for future recall the amount of galvanic current that is flowing and that has flowed when corrosion is , or has been, occurring.
