Study of Submarine Gas Leakage at Admiralty Sound, Antarctica
Entry ID: CDA_AR_GEO_SUBMARINE-GAS

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The submarine leakage of non volcanic gases, composed mainly by methane (CH4)
an traces of CO2 and SH2 observed at Admiralty Sound (Estrecho Bouchard)
suggests that accumulation of methane hydrates probably occur below the sea
bottom.
