Environment aspects of manganese nodule mining

  title={Environment aspects of manganese nodule mining},
  author={Anthony F. Amos and Oswald A. Roels},
The authors describe the environmental baseline conditions in the ‘nodule zone’, with emphasis on those parameters that might be affected by nodule mining. They consider the impact of full-scale mining operations on that environment and, finally, Put forward recommendations to minimise adverse impacts and so to make deep-sea mining environmentally acceptable.
