Finding subsurface reserves of methane on Mars could revolutionize human space travel, but it won’t be an easy hunt.
Analyses of microbial activity in seawater samples help clarify the fate of methane released from the seafloor.
Scientists find links between delayed freezing of Alaskan soils and higher atmospheric methane concentrations during the cold season.
Although methane emission estimates from underground coal production appear to be accurate, the calculated emissions from natural gas production are underreported.
A new study looks for the source of a spike in the potent greenhouse gas methane.
A holistic approach to tracking leaks from natural gas pipelines could prevent explosions and also help reduce greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
A new study in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area reveals prior estimates may significantly underrepresent methane emissions, particularly from landfills and natural gas systems.
A sensitive underwater microphone captures the sounds of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, escaping into waters off the coast of Oregon. Using this sound, researchers can estimate the bubbles’ sizes.
Drowned river deltas exhale large quantities of greenhouse gas, new study finds.
Methane is generally considered secondary to carbon dioxide in its importance to climate change, but what role might methane play in the future if global temperatures continue to rise?
