Lee Rannals for RedOrbit.com New research suggests meteorites may be the culprit behind how methane became present in the atmosphere of Mars. Using meteorites found on Earth, researchers from the University of Edinburgh, the Max Planck Institute in Germany and Utrecht University set out to find how Mars' environment started hosting methane gas. The meteorite samples used landed on Earth 40 years ago, but Dr. Andrew McLeod, of the University of Edinburgh's School of GeoSciences told...

Lack of Research in Rushed Embrace of Shale Gas as "Bridge Fuel" Seen as Troubling WASHINGTON, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Modern hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") is so new that over half of all the shale gas ever developed in the world has been produced in the last three years, which has resulted in nearly all of the peer-reviewed scientific research on the environmental and public health consequences of shale gas having been done in the last 14 months. The...

Thawing Arctic Cryosphere Releases Trapped Methane
2012-05-22 09:10:29

Brett Smith for RedOrbit.com The edges of glaciers and Arctic permafrost are where most of the evidence of global warming can be seen, but scientists have recently been traveling to these remote locations for a different reason. Researchers from the University of Alaska at Fairbanks just published a study in the online edition of Nature Geoscience showing that methane trapped under arctic lake ice for millions of years is now being released by the melting ice. The team used both aerial...

Dinosaur Farts May Have Caused Prehistoric Warming
2012-05-07 08:58:22

Brett Smith for RedOrbit.com Dinosaurs may have had a silent, but deadly effect on their climate according to new research by scientists at two UK universities. The study, published in the May 8 edition of Current Biology, compared the digestion-related methane production of Mesozoic-era sauropods to modern cows in an attempt to determine a possible impact as the gas ripped into their prehistoric environment. "A simple mathematical model suggests that the microbes living in sauropod...

Image 1 - Investigating Titan's Chemical Factory
2012-04-25 03:20:22

Saturn's giant moon Titan hides behind a thick, smoggy atmosphere that's well known to scientists as one of the most complex chemical environments in the solar system. It's a productive "factory" cranking out hydrocarbons that rain down on Titan's icy surface and cloak it in soot. With a brutally cold surface temperature of around minus 270 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 170 degrees Celsius), the hydrocarbons form lakes of liquid methane and ethane. However, the most important raw ingredient in...

Uranus' moon Umbriel -- Umbriel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. It was named after the 'dusky melancholy sprite' in Alexander Pope's The Rape of the Lock. Umbriel's surface is the darkest of the Uranian moons, and it is also the least geologically active. It is mostly composed of water ice, with the balance made up of silicate rock and methane ice. Most of its methane ice is on its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...

Uranus' moon Ariel -- Ariel is a moon of Uranus discovered in 1851 by William Lassell. Its composition is roughly 50% water ice, 30% silicate rock, and 20% methane ice, and it appears to have regions of fresh frost in places. Largely devoid of impact craters, Ariel appears to have undergone a period of intense geological activity that has produced a huge network of fault canyons and liquid water outflows over its surface. ----- Discovery Discovered by William Lassell...
