California's Methane Super Emitter | Ars Technica

Methane is a much stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide and binds much more heat. Point source methane emitters are typically small – typically less than 10 meters in diameter – but they emit clouds of highly concentrated methane. So, if we want to reduce the amount of methane we throw into the air (which we should of course do, …

One-third of Californian methane is due to some super-emitters

Views of NASA's Methane Source Finder, a tool that provides methane data for the state of California. The data comes from airborne remote sensing, surface monitoring networks and satellites and is displayed on an interactive map along with infrastructure information. Picture credits: NASA / JPL-Caltech NASA scientists are helping California create a detailed, nationwide inventory of methane source sources – …

Hunt the methane dragon lurking in the deep sea

DOWN AT THE ATLANTIC OCEAN – Forty miles off the coast of North Carolina, the 274-foot research ship Atlantis paced and walked evenly along a dark, empty strip of ocean as the crew hurled sound waves deep into the ocean. A quarter mile below, methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, rose from the bottom of the sea. The Pea Island Underwater …

NASA's methane discovery on Mars has become much more interesting – BGR

At the end of June, NASA announced that the sensors on its Curiosity Rover are delivering alarmingly high levels of methane, seemingly coming from nowhere. Determining the source of this methane and whether it is a geological or a biological process is now an important area of ​​research for scientists. A new study from Newcastle University does not provide a …
