Simultaneous measurements of methane in the nearwater atmospheric layer and in the surface water layer were carried out for the first time in a shallow-water region of the East Siberian shelf. It follows from the data obtained that the regions of anomalously high values of methane concentration in the air (up to 8 ppm) spatially coincide with the patches of anomalously high concentrations of methane dissolved in water (up to 5 · 10 2 nM). The analysis of possible sources allowed us to formulate… 

The contribution of the East Siberian shelf to the modern methane cycle

Methane-containing sediments, accumulated everywhere along continental margins, are a powerful source of atmospheric methane, the third (after carbon dioxide and water vapors) most significant

Global methane flux into the atmosphere and its seasonal variations

We have analyzed the regularities in the spatiotemporal behavior of the methane concentration and mass, recorded in different regions of the globe. In the southern hemisphere (SH), the methane

Numerical simulation of possible methane flows in the atmosphere resulting from submarine fluid venting

One of the possible mechanisms of methane venting into the atmosphere from lithospheric sources is the periodic gas emission by mud volcanoes and fluid seeps. To estimate quantitatively the scale of

Estimating the global flux of methane into the atmosphere and its seasonal variations

A new method of estimating the global fluxes of methane into the Earth’s atmosphere is proposed. This method allows one to take into account the whole spectrum of methane sources irrespectively of

Evidence of Gas Emissions from Permafrost in the Russian Arctic

The active emission of gas (mainly methane) from terrestrial and subsea permafrost in the Russian Arctic has been confirmed by ample evidence. In this paper, a generalization and some systematization

Methane in the surface waters of Northern Eurasian marginal seas

living plants, as well as plant litter, emit methane to the atmosphere under oxic conditions, which could account for 10–30% of the annual methane source strength and has been overlooked in previous studies.
