Photos of seabed minerals

Here you can find a range of photos of seabed minerals. The photos can be downloaded and used free of charge so long as all content is clearly marked with the date, reference and link to the source. Bildene kan brukes uten vederlag så lenge de merkes med dato, henvisning og lenke til kilden.

Utsnitt-av-manganskorpe.jpg

Nils Rune Sandstå and Jan Stenløkk, geologists at the NPD, shows a detailed section (1 mm) of a manganese crust. The crust consists of thin laminas.
