On the occurrence of ferromanganese micronodules from the sediments of the Bengal Fan: A high terrigenous sediment input region
Studies of 13 samples (10 surface sediments and 3 cores) from across the middle fan region of the Bay of Bengal reveal the presence of micronodules (area 0.22 million km@u2@@) over the entire bay. These micronodules have ...
Distribution of manganese nodules, rocks and sediments in the Central Indian Ocean Basin: Factors influencing performance of mining system
(Publ. and Inf. Dir., New Delhi, India, 1994)
Manganese nodule abundances in the Central Indian Ocean Basin (CIOB) as noted from seabed photographs (nil to 18.4 kg/m sup(2)) and grabs (nil to 21.5 kg/m sup(2)) are variable. The relative abundance varies from zero to ...
Behavior of rare earth elements in coexisting manganese macronodules, micronodules, and sediments from the central Indian Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 1994)
Associated manganese macronodules, micronodules, and sediments from the Central Indian Basin (CIB) were analyzed for major, trace, and rare earth elements (REE) to understand REE carrier phases and their fractionation ...
Geochemical trends in the sediments and manganese nodules from a part of the Central Indian Basin
(Geological Society of India, 1994)
Geochemical analyses of eighteen surface sediments samples collected from an area between 1 degree-15 degrees S latitudes and 73 degrees-87 degrees E longitudes exhibit significant variation in their chemical ...
Influence of seabed topography on the distribution of manganese nodules and associated features in the Central Indian Basin: A study based on photographic observations
The distribution of manganese nodules and associated rock outcrops and sediment cover in the Central Indian Basin (10 degrees-16 degrees S, 73 degrees-82 degrees E), were studied from seabed photographs in relation to ...
Benthic disturbance and monitoring experiment in the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(Int. Society of Offshore and Polar Engineering, Colorado, USA, 1997)
Environmental impact assessment studies for deep-sea manganese nodule mining have been initiated in the Central indian Ocean Basin since 1995. As a part of the first phase for collecting the benthic baseline data, echosounding, ...
