Can melting of frozen methane explain rapid climate change 56 million...

New research, led by the University of Southampton, suggests that the release of methane from the seafloor was much slower than previously thought during...

Sediments control methane release to the ocean

Methane is stored under the sea floor, concentrated in form of hydrates, crystalline ice structures that stay stable under high pressure and in low...

Hydrothermal vents, methane seeps play enormous role in marine life, global...

The hydrothermal vents and methane seeps on the ocean floor that were once thought to be geologic and biological oddities are now emerging as...

Methane-producing microbes in California rocks

Deep in vents on the ocean floor, methane-producing microbes feed off chemical reactions between water and rock. Now evidence of this process has been...

UC geologists identify sources of methane, greenhouse gas, in Ohio, Colorado...

Researchers from the University of Cincinnati recently studied the sources of methane at three sites across the nation in order to better understand this...

Retreat of the ice followed by millennia of methane release

Scientists have calculated that the present day ice sheets keep vast amounts of climate gas methane in check. Ice sheets are heavy and cold,...

Major source of methanol in the ocean identified

As one of the most abundant organic compounds on the planet, methanol occurs naturally in the environment as plants release it as they grow...

Tiny red crystals dramatically increase biogas production

UNSW Australia-led researchers have discovered a way to produce a tenfold increase in the amount of methane gas emitted by naturally occurring microbes living...

Clams help date duration of ancient methane seeps in the Arctic

Clams, mussels, scallops and oysters sound like delicious items on a restaurant menu. But bivalves such as these are much more than that: They...

Ice sheets may be hiding vast reservoirs of powerful greenhouse gas

The study indicates that under the frigid weight of Barents Sea Ice sheet, which covered northern Eurasia some 22 000 years ago, significant amounts...
