Methane is a potent greenhouse gas that is produced in marine sediments containing high amounts of degrading organic carbon. It is therefore not surprising that marine sediments contain vast amounts of methane (500-5000 gigatons) present in dissolved (aqueous), free gas (gaseous), and solid (clathrate) forms. Nevertheless, very little methane ultimately escapes into the atmosphere (circa 10 - 15 Tg/yr, or 2% of the total methane emissions into the atmosphere) due, for the most part, to the… CONTINUE READING
