November 17, 2008


Dr. Shari Rosenbloom has been appointed to the National Research Council's new committee on Research Opportunities in Corrosion Science and Engineering (ROCSE). The committee's charge is to: (1) identify the science opportunities that have arisen from recent advances and accomplishments in the field of fundamental corrosion research and that will advance scientific understanding of the mechanisms of corrosion processes, materials degradation, and their mitigation; (2) prioritize a set of research grand-challenge questions to fill identified scientific gaps; and (3) make recommendations on a national strategy in fundamental corrosion research with the goal of gaining the critical understanding of (a) materials degradation and (b) mitigating technologies. The strategy should also include recommendations on how to maximize the dissemination of the outcomes of corrosion research to maximize their incorporation into corrosion mitigation.
