UMass Research Centers Around Ferro-Manganese Nodules
AMHERST, MA(wfcr) -
A UMass Amherst geologist has found some of the largest and fastest growing mineral deposits in North America, in a New Hampshire lake. Celeste Asikainen says if researchers can understand the environmental conditions that created the deposits of copper, iron and other heavy metals, it could help discover new metal sources. Asikainen is trying to determine why these particular deposits also known as nodules were found clinging to a "Moxi" soda bottle from 1929.
