Short summary
Manganese nodules are a deep-sea mineral resource considered for mining. This paper provides insights into measuring the distribution of manganese nodules at meter resolution. Nodule abundance was determined by autonomous robots using cameras and echo sounders. Based on the meter-scale abundance measurements, environmental impacts of simulated deep-sea mining were assessed. The spatial extent of a sediment plume was determined and showed correlation to small variations in seafloor topography.
