Latest Methane clathrate Stories
A section of the Arctic Ocean seafloor that holds vast stores of frozen methane is showing signs of instability and widespread venting of the powerful greenhouse gas.
Scientists from the Marine Biogeochemistry and Geology and Geophysics sections of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) organized and led a team of university and government scientists on an Arctic expedition to initiate methane hydrate exploration in the Beaufort Sea and determine the spatial variation of sediment contribution to Arctic climate change.
Scientists worry that rising global temperatures accompanied by melting permafrost in arctic regions will initiate the release of underground methane into the atmosphere.
A research team is claiming to have evidence that shows methane is escaping from the Arctic sea bed.
A huge amount of global warming transformed the Earth into a hothouse 55 million years ago, but the cause remains a mystery, scientists stated on Monday.
FARMINGDALE, N.Y., May 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cemtrex, Inc. (OTC: CTEI) announced that it is expanding its marketing activities in Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) for generation of carbon credits. When coal is formed in the mines, so is methane.
An analysis of ancient Greenland ice suggests a spike in the greenhouse gas methane about 11,600 years ago originated from wetlands rather than the ocean floor or from permafrost, a finding that is good news according to the University of Colorado at Boulder scientist who led the study.
According to scientists, Greenlandâ€™s icesheet has revealed a store of methane that appears to be more stable that previously thought, easing tensions over a rapid rise in global temperatures.
In the future, natural gas derived from chunks of ice that workers collect from beneath the ocean floor and beneath the arctic permafrost may fuel cars, heat homes, and power factories.
NASA TVâ€™s broadcast on Thursday confirmed that Mars is, indeed, an active planet in our solar system, as the first definitive detection of methane gas has been released into the red planetâ€™s atmosphere.
