Editorial Reviews

The fifth of nine volumes prepared by the United Nations examining different aspects of the development of manganese nodule resources. The location of a processing plant for manganese nodules depends more on the availability and cost of complementary inputs (e.g. energy and chemicals) than on the traditional considerations of proximity to the mine or to the market.
