Studying mollusc corrosion of metals. Researcher studying the effects of marine molluscs on the metal hulls of boats. Barnacles and other molluscs attach themselves to the hulls of boats using a biological adhesive. This, combined with bacteria, forms a biofilm that can corrode the metal hulls. Here, the researcher is analysing a corroded surface to find out what chemicals are present.
