    The chemical composition of nodules varies according to the kind of manganese minerals and the size and characteristics of the core. Those of greatest economic interest contain manganese ( %), nickel ( %), copper ( %) and cobalt ( %). Other constituents include iron (6 %), silicon (5%) and aluminium (3%), with lesser amounts of calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium. Why are iron-manganese nodules on the surface of the sea floor? Phosphorus-bearing nodules or layers precipitate on seafloor below sediment-water interface. Beneath areas of very high biological productivity (low O2 lots of bacterial activity) What is an .

The mineral composition of manganese-bearing minerals is dependent on how the nodules are formed; sedimentary nodules, which have a lower Mn 2+ content than diagenetic, are dominated by Fe-vernadite, Mn-feroxyhyte, and asbolane-buserite while diagenetic nodules are dominated by buserite I, birnessite, todorokite, and asbolane-buserite.

The growth types termed diagenetic and hydrogenetic. The Origin of Manganese Nodules: A Combined Theory with Special Reference to Palagonitization' MAURY MORGENSTEIN2 AND MURRAY FELSHER3 ABSTRACT: Manganese responsible for nodular development is derived from both the oceans and the continents.

The bulk of manganese is probably derived through continental weathering. Seafloor manganese nodules contain primarily manganese, but also nickel, cobalt, copper, and rare earth elements (Hein ). Those deposits may be an important future source of supply for the Author: James R.

Hein. Other articles where Manganese nodule is discussed: authigenic sediment: Manganese nodules are pebbles or stones about the size of walnuts that are built of onionlike layers of manganese and iron oxides. Minor constituents include copper, nickel, and cobalt, making the nodules a potential ore of these valuable elements.

Mining of manganese nodules has been. Abstract. Study of the occurrence and physical and chemical character of manganese nodules collected in box cores in DOMES Sites A, B, and C indicates that Cited by:   Deep sea manganese nodules from the Southern Ocean have been studied using chemical analysis, X-ray diffraction, optical mineragraphic and electron probe microanalysis techniques.

The nodules were lower in manganese, iron and associated elements than the average grade of manganese nodules from other localities.

A number of chemical relationships have been by: Marine manganese nodules, those strange, fist-sized metallic clusters that cover about 30% of the ocean floor, have been known for over a hundred years. At first glance they appear very fresh; yet, according to paleontological and radiometric dating methods, the nodules are supposedly multi-millions of years old, the result of extremely slow.

Manganese nodules occur in many marine regions. They are found in significant abundances in four regions of the ocean: CLARION-CLIPPERTON ZONE (CCZ): With an area of around 9 million square kilometres, approximately the size of Europe, this is the world‘s largest manganese nodule region.

The CCZ is located in the Pacific, extending from the. Learn manganese nodules are with free interactive flashcards.

Analysis of the geochemical indicators of organic matter and major and trace element compositions of nodules showed that samples with strong Mn enrichment (Mn/Fe =on average) are dominated.

HnAHvntC GEOLOGY ELSEVIER Marine Geology () Mineralogical control on transition metal distributions in marine manganese nodules Guobin Lei1, Kurt Bostr Department of Geology and Geochemistry, Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden Received 7 July ; revision accepted 8 February Abstract Electron microprobe and X-ray diffraction data for origin of marine manganese nodules as determined by textural and mineralogical analysis book Pacific manganese Cited by: Past sea surface temperatures can be determined from fossils found in deep ocean sediments.

True Manganese nodules have successfully been commercially mined in the ocean. Data are presented for 16 major and minor elements and for the 3 major mineral phases present in nodules and crusts. Methods of analysis for nodules and crusts and their tailings include physical, chemical, mineralogical, and leaching test procedures.

Results of processing show varying recoveries of the metals cobalt, copper, manganese, and nickel. As a starting point for defining the different types of marine Fe–Mn (oxyhydr)oxide precipitates, we used our own datasets for well-characterized hydrogenetic crusts from the Central Pacific (published in Bau et al., ), diagenetic nodules from the Peru Basin (described by Von Stackelberg, ), hydrogenetic nodules from the Pacific, and hydrothermal iron and manganese deposits from the Cited by:   Scientists recently discovered a large batch of manganese nodules on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.1 These metallic pellets provide strong evidence that most seafloor sediments were deposited rapidly, not slowly and gradually over millions of years.

Are these nodules evidence of the Genesis Flood. Manganese nodules are found scattered on the ocean floor. Cobalt-rich crusts form at shallower depths (around to 4 kilometres) than manganese nodules on the flanks and summits of seamounts (ISA, ). Accretion rates for cobalt-rich crusts and nodules are some of the slowest natural processes on the planet and can be as slow as one to six millimetres of growth every one million years.

Marine ferromanganese crusts and nodules are highly enriched in transition metals such as Ni and Co, yet the crystal chemistry and mode of incorporation of these metals is poorly known. We characterized the crystal chemistry of Ni in two hydrogenetic Pacific ocean ferromanganese crust samples and a hydrogenetic nodule from the Madeira abyssal Cited by: Rock concretions on the sea bottom formed of concentric layers of iron and manganese hydroxides around a core.

The core may be microscopically small and is sometimes completely transformed intomanganese minerals by crystallization. (Also known as Polymetallic nodules). The existence of manganese (Mn) nodules (Figure 1) has been known since the late s when they were collected during the Challenger expedition of – However, it was not until after WWII that nodules were further studied in detail for their ability to adsorb metals from seawater.

Many of the early studies did not distinguish Mn nodules from Mn crusts. Manganese nodules are deposits of ferromanganese oxides and other elements in the soil of the oceans.

Explanation: Manganese nodule is the name given to the deposition of ferromanganese oxides and other elements in the soil of the oceans. These nodules vary in size from 1cm to 10cm in size and distribution in the oceans, being formed by three. The samples of rich manganese ore (1 and 2) from Obikhingouskiy and Khaburabadskiy deposits were investigated.

Chemical and mineral compositions are given in Tables 2 and 3. Sample 1 of rich manganese ore, which is of the greatest interest, was subjected to more detailed mineralogical analysis in view of metallurgical value.

Introduction Ono of the most common manganese oxide phases detected in marine ferromanganese nodules, crusts and rnetalliferous sediments is that with characteristic X-rav difraction lines at A and A Cited by: Analyses of the bulk oxidation state of marine manganese nodules indicates that more than 98% of the Mn in deep ocean nodules is present as Mn(IV).

The samples were collected from three quite different areas: the hemipelagic environment of the Guatemala Basin, the pelagic area of the North Pacific, and seamounts in the central Pacific.

Results of the study suggest that todorokite in marine. Recently, meaning since the 's, nodules have been recognized as a potential ore source, investigation of which is stimulated by the progressive depletion of land-based mineral resources.

Several generations of scientists from various countries have contributed to the problem of exploration of manganese nodules on the ocean by: Polymetallic nodules are rounded accretions of manganese and iron hydroxides that cover vast areas of the seafloor, but are most abundant on abyssal plains at water depths of metres.

They form through the aggregation of layers of iron and manganese hydroxides around a central particle (such as a shell or small rock fragment), and.

Manganese nodules are widely distributed on the sea floor of every ocean and in some temperate lakes. They are found in areas of negligible sedimentation and/or strong bottom currents, e.g. on the North Pacific abyssal plain at depths of – m, and on the shallow, current-swept Blake Plateau off the east coast of the USA.
