Abstract:The morphologies of manganese are numerous;
commonly, they are classified as: micronodules,
meganodules, crusts, botryoidals, and
agglomerates. Within these classes are numerous
shape categories. The purpose of this paper is
to describe two, shape and surface-texture categories
for manganese meganodules taken in a
dredge (V16-SBT3) by Lamont-Doherty Geological
Observatory near the Mid-Atlantic
Ridge, at lat. 13°04' S, long. 24°41 ' W, in
4,700 meters water depth . Septarian concretionary
features were observed on the bulk of the
nodules, as were concentric manganese ring
growths around rock centers, constituting the
first known occurrence of this morphology in
deep-sea sediments.
