Chemical composition of ocean Fe-Mn ores, supplement to: Bazilevskaya, Elena S (2007): Investigation of Ocean Ferro-Manganese Ores. Geological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Transactions, vol. 518. Nauka Publ. (Moscow); Gablina, I.F. (Ed.), 189 pp

Elena S Bazilevskaya
The monograph includes the study of chemical and mineral compositions of terrestrial and marine manganese ores, methods of their analysis, dependence of manganese crust geochemistry on tectonic position of their formation, problems of manganese genesis and sources of manganese in ocean ores in connection with geohistorical aspects of ocean formation and development. A hypothesis is offered that formation of giant manganese mineral basins on continental margins resulted from a large asteroid fall to the ocean.
