During the 33th voyage of the R/V "Vityaz" in the Indian Ocean iron-manganese nodules were collected at several stations. Both nodules and associated sediments were analysed by spectral analysis over 30 chemical elements. Radioactivity measurements were also performed on these samples.

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1989 NOAA-NCEI compiled the NOAA-MMS Marine Minerals Geochemical Database from journal articles, technical reports and unpublished sources from other institutions.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.
