Physical characteristics of manganese nodules GRID-Arendal

Manganese nodules come in many shapes and sizes. They can be round, oblong, composite, or flat. Their shape can be influenced by the shape of the nucleus, the water content of the surrounding sediment, growth rates, and how often they are turned by infauna or moved by epifauna. As a general rule, smaller nodules tend to be more symmetrical.

The rate of manganese accretion is partially dependent upon the rate of diagenetic palagonitization. New measurements indicate linear manganese accretion rates range from 1.7 to 8.7 mrn/106 years. Rates for volumetric manganese accretion range from 110 to 1;300 mm3/ 106 years.

Manganese nodules « World Ocean Review

Together with cobalt crusts, manganese nodules are considered to be the most important deposits of metals and other mineral resources in the sea today. These nodules, with a size ranging from that of a potato to a head of lettuce, contain mainly manganese, as their name suggests, but also iron, nickel, copper, titanium and cobalt.

The surface texture of nodules depends partly on the dominant mechanism of formation.
