Count Component Title Abstract
1 The NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals Bibliography From 1983 through 1992, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) compiled a comprehensive, computerized bibliography of offshore marine mineral deposits as a cooperative effort with the Ocean Minerals and Energy Division of the NOAA National Ocean Service, and the Office of International Activities and Marine Minerals (INTERMAR) of the Minerals Management Service (MMS). In October of 1992, the NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals Bibliography (MMBIB) was released as a compact disc. The bibliography includes over 17,000 citations of references to sea floor deposits of ferromanganese (polymetallic) nodules and crusts, placers/heavy minerals, phosphorites, and polymetallic sulfides published from 1831 through 1990. References include key word categories indicating geographic area and type of study conducted. Subject key words are annotated with "general" or "technical" to indicate whether a subject was mentioned briefly, or was explored in detail. Key words also include the names of each mineral and each element mentioned in the article. Geographic keys include ocean or sea name, numeric designators for the ocean/sea, the name of any pertinent geographic feature, US exclusive economic zones (e.g. East Coast), and geologic setting. The NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals CD-ROM Data Set, produced by NGDC and partially funded by INTERMAR, contains the entire NGDC Marine Minerals Bibliography and Geochemical Database and several data files compiled by other organizations. The bibliography is searchable on-line on NGDC's web server. The NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals Bibliography and geochemical database was incorporated by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) into their online compilation, which uses the NGDC MMBIB identification system for references.

Count Component Name Definition
1 MMBIB Identifier A unique identifier for a reference within the NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals Bibliography consisting of the first four letters of the (first) author last name, followed by the first letter of the (first) author first name, then the first letter of the (first) author middle name (a if no middle name), then the last two digits of the year of publication, then a two digit sequence number within the year. E.g., CRONTM8301 (Cronin, T.M., 1983). The MMBIB is also used to cross-reference source articles with geochemical data in the NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals Geochemistry database. This convention has been continued by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) in their bibliography and geochemical databases which are partially derived from the NOAA and MMS Marine Minerals Bibliography and Database.
1 Author The author(s) of the reference
1 Title The title of the reference
1 In The title of the encompassing reference if the article is within a composite volume
1 Serial The name of a series (journal, special publication series, etc.) of which the reference is a part
1 Volume The number, issue, or other designator for a volume within a series.
1 Pages The page numbers within an encompassing publication occupied by the reference.
1 Crossreference Indication of a cross reference
1 Part of MMBIB The MMBIB Identifier of an encompassing work of which this reference is part.
1 Publication Type The MMBIB Identifier of an encompassing work of which this reference is part.
1 Language The language in which the reference is written.
1 Deposit type Type: Refers to the type of deposit being described on this form - more than one form is required (1 per type) if more than one relevant type of deposit is treated in the article. Deposit - Refers to an actual concentration of Manganese (crust, pavement, micronodules, nodules, etc.), Phosphorite (nodules, layers, massive deposits), Placer (Placer or Heavy Mineral study on a continental shelf or other insular margin less than 200 meters water depth - deposits where the only heavy mineral mentioned is pyrite do not qualify as heavy mineral/placer), or Polymetallic Sulfides (veins, stockwork, layers, massive sulfides, etc.) associated with hydrothermal systems in the ocean. Where the sulfides are finely disseminated in a hard rock rather than isolated as significant veins, etc., it is not considered to be a polymetallic sulfide deposit for purposes of this bibliography. This does not include disseminated Mn or Sulfides in sediments (including pyrite) unless closely associated with a hydrothermal vent or ridge system. It also does not include mn, sulfate, sulfide, phosphorus or phosphate dissolved in the water column, or phosphorus/phosphate disseminated in sediment. 'Phosphorite' is a specific term referring to a rock of higher than a certain % phosphorus - we don't draw a line because the % varies. Phosphorus is an element, and phosphates are a group of compounds - we are interested in 'phosphorites' or 'phosphate-rich' rocks, sand, gravel, pebbles, cobbles, crusts, or layers.
1 Relevance 1 Whole Article - refers to whether the type of mineral deposit on this form was the main subject of the article, or was only mentioned as a secondary (less important) subject. If any one chapter in a multiauthor volume has a relevance of P, then the entire multiauthor volume should be given a relevance of P for that deposit type.
1 Relevance 2 For 1 digit fields - refers to whether this particular subject is covered in the article as a general, common knowledge, item, or is studied in technical detail - quantitative analyses are always technical, but some non-quantitative data can also be classified as technical.
1 Subjects - Geochemistry where weight percentages of elements or compounds are measured within the deposit. Note - Any element/compound mentioned should be included as key word, type other, but only if it is mentioned in relation to a relevant deposit.
1 Subjects - Photographs Photographs included relevant to a mineral deposit.
1 Subjects - Mineralogy Any mineral mentioned should be included as an 'other key word'- only if it is mentioned in relation to a relevant deposit.
1 Subject - Age Date Age dating of relevant mineral deposits included in reference.
1 Subject - Deposit Genesis Discussion of method of deposit formation
1 Subject - Growth/Accumulation where the rate of growth of nodules (or accumulation of matter by the deposit in general is given)
1 Subject - Geophysical Exploration For placer/heavy minerals articles. Refers to geophysical exploration directly related to the heavy mineral deposit ONLY. For example, a magnetometer survey to discover the limits of the deposit.
1 Subject - Grain Size For placer/heavy minerals articles. Refers to a grain size analysis of the actual heavy mineral-rich area or placer deposit ONLY.
1 Subject - Predictive Modeling For placer/heavy minerals articles. A study of the possible sources of the heavy minerals found in the deposit - development of a THEORETICAL MODEL to explain the deposit location, configuration, or composition, or predict location of other placers.
1 Subject - Surrounding Sediment/Geochemistry Sediment - When the sediment surrounding a deposit is studied, for manganese deposits, then use this category - it usually refers to sediments around hydrothermal vents or around Mn nodules. Used if the geochemistry of the sediment or its interstitial waters is given. Same criteria for T/G as in deposit, includes isotope chemistry of sediments.
1 Subject - Surrounding Sediment/Properties Sediment - When the sediment surrounding a deposit is studied, for manganese deposits, then use this category - it usually refers to sediments around hydrothermal vents or around Mn nodules. used if any physical properties of the sediment are measured - e.g., grain size, density, porosity, permeability, general makeup, thickness, etc.
1 Subject - Hard Rock Studies This category is used when hard rock associated with a deposit, or an area where deposit formation is likely (ie. around a hydrothermal vent) is studied, rather than/or in addition to, the actual mineral deposit. (if a hard rock study of a massive sulfide or phosphorite itself is made, then use the deposit category above). Any study of the rock qualifies - use appropriate key word type other to qualify the type of study.
1 Subject - Water Column Studies/Chemistry This refers to water above or surrounding a deposit, or a hydrothermal vent (not to interstitial or pore water of sediment, or fluid inclusions in hardrock). It can be used for hydrothermal vent waters after they exit the vent into the water column. Waters within vents are described using the key word type other fields. Any chemical study.
1 Subject - Water Column Studies/Temperature This refers to water above or surrounding a deposit, or a hydrothermal vent (not to interstitial or pore water of sediment, or fluid inclusions in hardrock). It can be used for hydrothermal vent waters after they exit the vent into the water column. Waters within vents are described using the key word type other fields. Any measurement of water temperature.
1 Subject - Economics The value, mining potential, or political/economic importance of a mineral deposit.
1 Subject - Instruments The instruments used to study, retrieve, or process the deposit are discussed (includes patents)
1 Subject - Law National or international laws, treaties, agreements, or principles are discussed
1 Subject - Extraction Also known as beneficiation - involves the removal of selected elements or compounds from deposit materials once they are recovered from the sea floor - may be chemical or mechanical or both (methods of recovery of material from the sea floor are instruments)
1 Subject - Environmental Impact Discussion of the impact of mining the deposit on the surrounding environment.
1 Subject - Biology Living organisms near the deposit are mentioned, or their possible role in the deposit formation is discussed (also note environmental impact, if applicable)
1 Settings - Geologic Setting Applicable geologic settings were indicated with an X in the column.
1 Settings - Feature Name List all applicable names, if on present list, use exact spelling, if not, please add to the list. Maximum length of a feature name is 30 characters including blanks and punctuation. For deposits described as being offshore from a region with a placename (beach, town, etc.). Please code that placename as a feature name also. Definitely list all state names in the U.S. if known, from which the deposits are offshore.
1 Settings - U.S. EEZ Zone An X in the field for a U.S. EEZ Zone indicates that a mineral deposit within that zone was discussed in the reference.
1 Settings - L.O.S. Areas Three digit codes for ocean areas from the International Hydrographic Organization (1953). Limits of Oceans and Seas. International Hydrographic Organization Special Publication No 23, 3rd edition, Monte Carlo. Use 999 for Worldwide See map and list of area codes - code 2-digit number in first 2 blanks of field, leaving 3rd blank for letter code.
1 Key Words - Other Note all minerals, elements, and compounds studied which DIRECTLY RELATE TO THE DEPOSIT. Use proper names, not chemical formulas. Note the form of the deposit (nodules, pellets, etc.), for placer/heavy mineral deposits note if it is a placer or heavy mineral. Note any major topic in the article not covered by these instructions - check indexes in bibliography to try to keep terms consistent, where possible. Always note the following when they are discussed in an article; Please spell out words exactly - do not use portion in parentheses.
1 ns Indicator of whether latitude is north or south of the equator.
