The Source for Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion E-Learning

Learn More About Diagnosing MIC


The chemistry of the operating environment strongly influences corrosion reactions and the activities of the microorganisms present.


The abundance, diversity and activity of microorganisms associated with corrosion damage are compared to areas without damage.


Characterization of the material and corrosion products provides insights about the corrosion reactions that have occurred.


Operational parameters such as temperature, pressure, velocity, fluid source, mitigation history, etc. are important for analyzing MIC.

Join MIC E-Learning Academy for Course 103: Fundamentals of MIC Threat Assessment

MIC threat assessment is the process of collecting and integrating multiple lines of evidence about an asset to determine if MIC is a threat that must be mitigated and monitored. MIC threat assessment is also performed during asset design to help in materials selection and the need for mitigation in the asset design. Learn how data from molecular microbiological methods (MMM) are used to help assess MIC threats and how MMM data should be integrated with other important information about the operating environment. provides useful MIC-related resources for students of MIC E-Learning Academy and others in research and industry who are interested in the subject of MIC.
