Summary
Abstract: Antarctica is the world's coldest, driest, highest and least polluted continent. Accepted wisdom is that atmospheric corrosion rates in Antarctica should be low because of the extreme dry cold. Russian research suggested that temperatures below 0 degrees C alone are insufficient to eliminate corrosion although temperatures consistently below -25 degrees C will markedly decrease corrosivity.
