Formation of Fe-Mn crusts

Year: 2014
From collection: Deep Sea Minerals Volume 1C
Author: GRID-Arendal
A wide array of metals and elements dissolved in ocean water are adsorbed (meaning to adhere to a surface) in large quantities onto the manganese and iron oxides. The main source of nearly all metals dissolved in seawater is erosion of the continents. The exception is manganese, which derives primarily from hydrothermal sources and mixes throughout the global ocean.
