This paper describes preliminary results of tests undertaken to evaluate the compatibility of radioactive waste storage canister materials with the external environments of ocean water and sediments. Bottom ocean water from the North Pacific and sediments with supernatent seawater from the Atlantic were used. The materials tested were base alloys of titanium, zirconium, and nickel. All showed corrosion rates that were very low even at the highest test temperature.
