Corrosion due to seawater studies are urgently required for a safe technology development. Some studies demonstrated that the corrosion rates for most alloys could be four times less than surface corrosion rates. A device for continuous electrochemical measuring of corrosion in real time and underwater has been designed. Therefore, this equipment allows improving the knowledge about longterm materials behavior in this aggressive environment for the scientific community. Also, it has been designed to allow the connection to underwater observatories such as OBSEA. In this paper we expose the first tests have been conducted in a real environment such as OBSEA.
