Scope The ocean ferromanganese deposits are integrated precipitates of hydrogenetic iron and manganese oxide minerals with enrichment of minor useful metal elements. The recent exploration of the deposits using ROV mapping and deep-sea drill provide us with new findings on mineralogy, geochemistry, microbiology, and physical engineering. The session reports the results of munti-disciplinary, multi-institutional investigation of origin, growth process, resource potential of hydrogenetic and diagenetic ferromanganese nodules and crusts in the Northwestern Pacific oceans
