Microbial lid on subsea methane
2015 (English)In: Nature Climate Change, ISSN 1758-678X, E-ISSN 1758-6798, Vol. 5, 723-724 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Submarine permafrost thaw in the Arctic has been suggested as a trigger for the release of large quantities of methane to the water column, and subsequently the atmosphere - with important implications for global warming. Now research shows that microbial oxidation of methane at the thaw front can effectively prevent its release.
