Re: Methane and the sea floor..
From article...

the Gulf Stream, which carries warm water north from the Gulf of Mexico, have heated sediments in a strip along the North Atlantic seafloor by 8 degrees Celsius, unlocking 2.5 billion metric tons of methane from deep-sea caches, scientists report in the Oct. 25 Nature.

This is the first study to suggest that methane hydrate melting is related to ocean currents themselves, says study coauthor Benjamin Phrampus, an Earth scientist at Southern Methodist University in Dallas





So the Louisiana sink hole could be the tip of the ice berg. We may already be experiencing a methane out gassing or defrosting?

This is far fetched thought but..Wonder if even Neutrinos could effect this layer sending the balance off.

Think "Bermuda Triangle".

Boats get caught in a methane release - the water turns to bubbles, and the boat immediately plunges to the sea floor!

Thanks. Just what I wanted to hear 6 days before my cruise in the Gulf.

The Earth is BEAUTIFUL!

I did not know this!


From this article..

"What we observed in June was a horizon of deep water laden with methane and other hydrocarbon gases," Valentine said. "When we returned in September and October and tracked these waters, we found the gases were gone. In their place were residual methane-eating bacteria, and a 1 million ton deficit in dissolved oxygen that we attribute to respiration of methane by these bacteria."
Kessler added: "Based on our measurements from earlier in the summer and previous other measurements of methane respiration rates around the world, it appeared that (Deepwater Horizon) methane would be present in the Gulf for years to come. Instead, the methane respiration rates increased to levels higher than have ever been recorded, ultimately consuming it and prohibiting its release to the atmosphere."

Costa Rican Earthquake Releases Methane Bubbles


Human history has recorded such an event 7,000 years ago off the coast of Norway which sent a towering tsunami wave crashing into Scotland. The structure of methane does not allow normal sedimentary rock to harden. As a result, massive areas under the ocean have literally a methane hydrate lubricating layer between upper and lower solidified rock. When the methane warms a few degrees, it releases the lattice that hardens which results in a softer more pliable deposit. When this happens unstable land masses simply slide into a more stable position and when this happens mass rock movement will cause a tsunami.

I have my reasons but always thought this would happen on a large scale and I wonder about the role of Methane.
