The Arctic is leaking methane 200 times faster than usual: Massive release of gas is creating giant holes and ‘trembling tundras’
July 22, 2016
Russian scientists have measured the gas emitted by the mysterious bubbles on Belyy Island in the Kara Sea. The ‘trembling tundra’ also contains concentrations of carbon dioxide 20 times higher than usual levels. Add to mysterious behaviour in the vast region, including the sudden appearance of giant holes in northern Siberia
Strange bubbles have been discovered in the Arctic permafrost – adding to mysterious behaviour seen in the region, including the sudden appearance of giant holes in northern Siberia.
Now Russian scientists have revealed the bubbles in the wobbly Earth are are leaking methane gas some 200 times above the norm in the atmosphere. The ‘trembling tundra’ also contains concentrations of carbon dioxide 20 times higher than usual levels.
The extent of the harmful greenhouse gases buried in this new phenomenon of jelly-like bubbles poses ‘very serious alarm’ concerning the impact of global warming, expert Alexander Sokolov warned.
Some 15 examples of this swaying Siberian ground were revealed this week on Belyy Island, a polar bear outpost 475 miles (764km) north of the Arctic Circle in the Kara Sea.
One account from a Russian research team at the scene said: ‘As we took off a layer of grass and soil, a fountain of gas erupted.’
… ‘It was like a jelly,’ said one researcher, who continued: ‘We have not come across anything like this before.’ He warned there is ‘serious reason to be concerned if gas bubbles appear in the permafrost zone’ with ‘unpredictable’ consequences.
