|Type of data: Check all that apply. Use "Other" to specify other types so that we can include them in further updates.
|Variable labels of dataset (the names of the variables)
||sample ID (mining site, dive No., ID No.), size, state, core class, analysis state (CT, XRF, ICP-MS, Os isotopic analysis), storage place,
|Outline of data
||For rare metal resource development, ferromanganese nodule attracted much attention. However, we don't have much information about ferromanganese nodule. In order to find out its origin and feature, we should conduct some analysis. This data shows state and progress of ferromanganese nodule analysis.
||Analyzing the feature of ferromanganese nodules depending on their mining site, state, size, or core class.
|Expected outcome of the process (obtained knowledge, analysis results, output of tools)
Site **** tends to have round and Core I type nodules, while Site **** has angular and Core IV type nodules.
|Anticipation for analyses/simulations other than the typical ones provided above
||For decision on which sample should be analyzed next. Samples are a lot and selecting sample is very important process for success research. I hope that researcher can make an appropriate selection of ferromanganese nodules from this dataset.
