Natural processes, not global warming, are primarily to blame for the dissolution of the fragile, ice-like solid fuel substances known as methane hydrates, according to new research published online Thursday in the journal Science.

Arctic Seafloor Releases Double Previous Estimates Of Methane

The seafloor off the coast of Northern Siberia is releasing more than twice the amount of methane as previously estimated, according to new research results published in the Nov. 24 edition of the journal Nature Geoscience.

Dwarfism In Mammals Also Occurred During Second Warming Period

While scientists have known for several years that some mammals became smaller during a period of warming known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, researchers have found a second instance of mammalian “dwarfing” attributable to increasing temperatures.

Worm Causing Methane Release Ocean Bed

A super-charged methane seep has been discovered in the ocean off the coast of New Zealand, and the source seems to be interactions between a unique community of worms and bacteria.

Methane Release From Earthquakes Feeds Global Warming

In 1945 an 8.1 magnitude earthquake hit the northern Arabian Sea which released 7.4 million cubic meters of methane into the ocean and atmosphere.

Marine scientists from Kiel, together with colleagues from Bremen, Great Britain, Switzerland and Norway, spent four and a half weeks examining methane emanation from the sea bed off the coast of Spitsbergen with the German research vessel MARIA S. MERIAN. There they gained a very differentiated picture: Several of the gas outlets have been active for hundreds of years.
