Fe and Mn Depositing Bacteria in Marine Suspended Macro-Particulates
Fe and Mn precipitating bacteria are known to occur in many diverse environments. Their activity has been studied in soils, streams, lake and marine sediments and in the water column of enclosed inlets and lakes (Gebers and Hirsh, 1978; Nealson et al., 1979). However, the literature contains few examples of corresponding studies from the pelagic zones of the oceans.
