The extent of SRB induced corrosion of magnesium, aluminium and zinc anodes, has been studied with time, in a 10% Postage (B) medium, at 303K. Simultaneously, the magnitude and activity of SRB as well as changes in pH and dissolved oxygen content have also been monitored. The results arrange these metals in terms of susceptibility to SRB-al attack, in the following order: Zn > Mg > Al. Besides, they clearly exemplify that the cathodic depolarization is the initial step for attack by SRB
