The combination of extreme weather conditions and economic activities has increased the number of corrosive agents in the air. This phenomenon will lead to rust formation in various assets, such as vehicles and steel properties. A Corrosion Hazard Map of Peninsular Malaysia was produced by considering parameters from climate and wet deposition information that influenced atmospheric corrosion: wetness, rainfall, chloride, nitrate, and sulphate. The inverse distance weighting interpolation technique was applied to generate the map. The study discovered that the corrosion rate at the southern and central part of Peninsular Malaysia is at level five, while the highland area is at level one. The Corrosion Hazard Map produced from this study would become as additional information that possibly will benefit various sectors such as metal industries, construction, land development, automotive coating technology, and others. � 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
