This handbook summarizes the main advances in our understanding of marine minerals and concentrates on the deposits of proven economic potential, rather than on all marine minerals. Where our knowledge is too limited to allow us to define their economic potential, those minerals are being covered regionally or by deposit type. The book is divided into four sections: marine placers, phosporite deposits, manganese nodules, and deep-sea hydrothermal mineralization. All of these mineral deposits have great potential importance to economic geologists and mineralogists.
This book was a pleasure to review-excellent papers, professionally edited, and well-presented. The breadth of papers would suggest the greatest appeal would be to strategic planners and exploration directors within the minerals industry, who are considering various options for their corporate strategiesThe volume certainly achieves its stated aim-of being a substantial tribute to the father of marine economic geology and the driving force behind the International Marine Minerals Society, the late Prof. J. Robert Moore. --Bob Foster, School of Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton, United Kingdom Promo Copy
