The comparison of Mn/Fe, Co/Ni, Co/Fe, Ni/Mn, and Cu/Fe ratios is presented and it is noticed that Co/Ni and Ni/Mn ratios of nodules fairly coincide with those of coexisting sediments. This agreement suggests that Mn, Ni, and Co are accumulated in both nodules and sediments at about the same rates. According to the calculation of Somayajulu et al. similar consideration is also applicable to Cu. Results are, however, implying that Cu co-precipitates with Fe, rather than Mn.

From 1983 until 1989 NOAA-NCEI compiled the NOAA-MMS Marine Minerals Geochemical Database from journal articles, technical reports and unpublished sources from other institutions. At the time it was the most extended data compilation on ferromanganese deposits world wide. Initially published in a propriatory format incompatible with present day standards it was jointly decided by AWI and NOAA to transcribe this legacy data into PANGAEA. This transfer is augmented by a careful checking of the original sources when available and the encoding of ancillary information (sample description, method of analysis..) not present in the NOAA-MMS database.
