Description Ferromanganese crusts were collected via dredge from seamounts within the Tuvalu Exclusive Economic Zone in the Pacific Ocean during cruise RR1310 funded by the National Science Foundation aboard the R/V Roger Revelle in 2013. USGS scientists requested these ferromanganese crust samples from the Oregon State University Marine and Geology Repository where they had been archived. Ferromanganese crust samples were sent to USGS for subsampling and x-ray diffraction analyses. Powder x-ray diffraction data for bulk and layer fractions of the ferromanganese crusts are provided here. Location information for the sample is included in each Attribute Definition of this metadata file, as well as in the geochemical data table (Tuvalu_RR1310_FeMn_geochem_data.csv) of this multi-table data release.
