Research by a University of Nebraska-Lincoln team - led by Don Johnson, retired professor of mechanical and materials engineering, and MME alums Dana Medlin and John Makinson - is gaining more notice for its research into the possible environmental impact of the corrosion of the USS Arizona, which was sunk during the Dec. 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor.
