About the Dataset
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) compiled data on the geochemistry of marine ferromanganese nodules,
funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), as part of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration (IDOE).
Data were collected under the Manganese Nodule (MNNOD) and Deep Ocean Mining Environmental Studies (DOMES) programs.

NGDC archives a wide variety of digital marine geology data collections, paper reports, microfilm, etc. containing sediment and hardrock data. Many of the digital files are available for direct download. Sample-by-sample inventory information for all data, regardless of format available from NGDC are fully searchable through the marine geology inventory (GEOLIN).
