Abstract Atmospheric corrosion tests have been conducted at Heron Island, Queensland, a low SO2 marine environment. The corrosion rates for copper followed the linear bi-logarithmic law. X-ray diffraction identified atacamite (basic copper chloride) and cuprite (cuprous oxide) as the predominant corrosion products. Biogenic and anthropogenic sources of pollution did not have a measurable influence.
