and Prognosis, i.e., when corrosion issues are addressed proactively rather than reactively.

The committee believes that this report, with its conclusions and recommendations, will provide a useful framework for structuring corrosion research opportunities and that it will occasion a renewed critical interest in corrosion research by federal agencies, unquestionably resulting in significant benefit for the nation once the results of the research have been implemented. Revitalization of the governmental and industrial corrosion research infrastructures will play an important role in reducing the costs of corrosion and better controlling it.
