Chemical composition of ferromanganese crusts in the world ocean
This is a fully integrated version of the ferromanganese crusts dataset, compiled by F.T. Manheim and C.M. Lane-Bostwick of the US Geological Survey, Woods Hole, MA. The original data set consists of tables corresponding the USGS Open-File Report 89-020 Chemical Composition of Ferromanganese Crusts in the World Ocean: A Review and Comprehensive Database. Data include excerpts from the SIO nodule file, the NGDC marine minerals data base, Japanese sources, a PhD thesis, analyses performed at the Bureau of Mines, and analyses performed at other laboratories under the direction of the USGS. These data are also included on the NOAA & MMS Marine Minerals CD-ROM data set released by NGDC in October of 1992.
