Summary:Significant cycling of trace elements may occur during early diagenesis of oceanic sediments, leading to a benthic flux at the water-sediment interface. Elsewhere, redistribution occurs within the sediment column, producing metal-enriched horizons. Element cycling in bottom sediments is important in the flow of elements within the oceans. Thus Co and Ni are enriched in pore waters at redox boundaries because they are released with dissolution of Mn oxide. [R.K.H.]
