Excess222Rn standing crops have been calculated from bottom profiles obtained at 119 locations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans during the GEOSECS cruises. They range over more than two orders of magnitude with clear north-south and east-west patterns. The standing crops are inversely related to the sedimentation rate and the zones of highest standing crops are also areas which have a high coverage of manganese nodules.
