Notes on Vent Field Description:
longitude and depth approximate; Murton et al. (1994): "The anomalies at 30 02'N occurred in the lowermost 1500 m of the water column, in the nodal deep basin at the western ridge-transform intersection of the Atlantis Fracture Zone. These were limited to manganese enrichments, but without corresponding particulates;"
