Physical characteristics of manganese nodules

Manganese nodules come in many shapes and sizes They can be round oblong composite or flat Their shape can be influenced by the shape of the nucleus the water content of the surrounding sediment growth rates and how often they are turned by infauna or moved by epifauna As a general rule smaller nodules tend to be more symmetrical As nodules grow they are less easily moved
