A new database for ferromanganese crusts from the world oceans is being compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey. Crusts differ from abyssal nodules by forming principally on steeper, raised areas or current-swept plateaus in the oceans. Some crusts contain relatively large concentrations of cobalt (1.0%) in areas within national territorial jurisdictions.
