Abstract

This paper describes the occurence and distribution of Fe and Mn oxides associated with hydrothermal activity on the mid-ocean ridges and discusses some of the mineralogical and chemical characteristics of the Fe and Mn precipitates. Studies of Fe and Mn oxides at seafloor hydrothermal vents have focussed primarily on the inorganic precipitation of metals, but routine mineralogical and chemical analyses of these deposits reveal abundant microbial forms and organic carbon which suggest that microorganisms may participate in the precipitation of Fe and Mn
