This paper, explores the possibility of using manganese nodules for studying the rates of authigenic removal of trace elements to the ocean floor, i.e. considering only trace elements in hydrogenous phases (Goldberg, 1964) in sediments. It follows the then recent detailed investigations of physiochcmical properties of manganese nodules made by others. In view of the various arguments the developed regarding a slow and possibly entirely authigcnic growth of manganese nodules, the authors were led to the measurements of a host of trace elements in several already radiomctrically dated manganese nodules and sediments.
