Frozen Methane

Frozen Methane

Written by Anum Saba

The frozen methane deposits have started to melt in the East Siberian continental slope in the Arctic Ocean. Those methane deposits are widely known as “Sleeping Giant”. The actual threat that has been caused due to melting is an increase in global warming as the detection of high levels of greenhouse gases has been detected near the region. The area has a huge quantity of methane and other gases that produces 80 times more heat than carbon dioxide. In four dangerous climate changes threats, methane has caused much heat over the past 20 years. According to Russian scientists, methane bubbles currently dissolve in water, but their heat went into the atmosphere. At present, at least, there seems no impact on global warming; however, it will be drastic in the future.

Although many scientists who are researching said their investigations are at an earlier stage, movements in the frozen methane have caused a tense environment regarding an increase in climate change. Though the temperature level in the Arctic region has been increased twice as compared to global warming, it has yet to gain crucial importance in the national world.

On the Akademik Keldysh, the 60 member team said that they first discovered the melting of methane that is 600km offshore. They have seen bubbles from the sediments at six monitoring points. At Laptev Sea location, a concentration of methane is up to 1,600 nanomoles per meters, which is as high as 400 times compared to if both the sea and atmosphere were in equilibrium.

A Russian scientist, Igor Semiletov, said that it is much larger than anything found before. Those frozen slopes are potentially dangerous, but not much is known about them. However, its consequences for climate change would be unbearable. The main reason behind the instability is human disruption in a climate that caused warm Atlantic current into the east Artic. The gas released from Artic is more significant than any sea in the region. Crater like pockmarks has been observed releasing methane that reaches sea level hundreds of times faster than usual.

This year from January to July, the Siberian region’s temperature rose 5C that is said to be caused by human activities that emitted carbon dioxide and methane. Not less than that, last year the ice malted earlier than usual. Along with this, winter freeze has yet to begin that is already late.
