In the region near Taormina, Sicily, the Mesozoic sedimentary veins which contain fillings have various ages ranging from Dogger-Malm until Paleocene-Ypresian. One can observe the development of graded sills parallel to the dip of the banking, formed by the superposition of limestone sequences with Globigerina, Gümbelines and Globotruncana. This study describes and illustrates these graded sills and the embedded fossil manganese nodules they contain.
Source data set:
Latitude: 37.852834 * Longitude: 15.304858
Minimum DEPTH, sediment/rock: 0 m * Maximum DEPTH, sediment/rock: 0 m
Analysis was done by Corbière, G. and Mariage, G. from Laboratoire de Géologie Dynamique, Paris.
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1989 NOAA-NCEI compiled the NOAA-MMS Marine Minerals Geochemical Database from journal articles, technical reports and unpublished sources from other institutions.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.
