(Table 5, page 2052) Chemical composition of bulk manganese nodule samples from the North Pacific Ocean


The authors have used an acid-reducing agent (1M-hydroxylamine hydrochloride) for leaching the samples following a method recommended by, Chester, R., Hughes, M.J., 1967. A chemical technique for the separation of ferro-manganese minerals, carbonate minerals and adsorbed trace elements from pelagic sediments. Chemical Geology 2, 249-262. doi:10.1016/0009-2541(67)90025-3.From 1983 until 1989 NOAA-NCEI compiled the NOAA-MMS Marine Minerals Geochemical Database from journal articles, technical reports and unpublished sources from other institutions. At the time it was the most extended data compilation on ferromanganese deposits world wide. Initially published in a proprietary format incompatible with present day standards it was jointly decided by AWI and NOAA to transcribe this legacy data into PANGAEA. This transfer is augmented by a careful checking of the original sources when available and the encoding of ancillary information (sample description, method of analysis...) not present in the NOAA-MMS database.
