The mysterious "bag" of underwater gas could contain 50 million tons of CO2

The seabed can be a gaseous place. Submarine Volcanoes and vents spew carbon dioxide (CO2) near the cracks in which tectonic plates dissolve. Hungry bacteria transform decaying creatures of the deep into natural methane. And recent research from Japan reminds us that huge, kilometer-wide greenhouse gas reservoirs lurk in pristine pockets just below the seabed. In a study published on …
