Record #117282:

Methane in permafrost -- preliminary studies at the CRREL permafrost tunnel near Fox, Alaska / Keith A. Kvenvolden, T.D. Lorenson, W.S. Reeburgh.

Title: Methane in permafrost -- preliminary studies at the CRREL permafrost tunnel near Fox, Alaska / Keith A. Kvenvolden, T.D. Lorenson, W.S. Reeburgh.
Author(s): Kvenvolden, Keith A.
Lorenson, T. D.
Reeburgh, W. S.
Date: 1992.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1992.), Vol. 73(14, spring meeting supplement) (1992)
Abstract: Abstract only. Air in tunnel contained 6 to 20 times more methane than outside atmosphere. Permafrost in tunnel sublimates with exchange of air; during this, methane is released from permafrost, suggesting that permafrost (at least in conditions of tunnel) can be source of atmospheric methane. Methane is probably of microbial origin.
