4DescriptionAbstract The fouling organisms of seawater embrace of algae (green and red), barnacles, molluscs and worms. The seasonality of attachment and quantification of fouling organisms on copper over a period of six months have been observed in the seawater. Photosynthetic actions of algae accelerate corrosion on copper. Barnacles and Molluscs cause pitting / crevice corrosion beneath their attachment site. In general, the assemblage of biofouling on copper surface over a period of exposure cause the corrosion rate. The pitting / crevice corrosion has been studied, using a high resolution microscope. The magnitude of origin experienced by copper is emphasized in terms of change in mechanical properties and the surface characteristics of the material.
