Study Detail

TitleBenthic methanogenesis and pelagic methane oxidation in the Eastern Tropical North Pacific Oxygen Minimum Zone
Study TypeOther
Abstract Oxygen minimum zones (OMZ) have been identified as major pools of oceanic methane but its origin and fate are poorly understood. Using high-resolution (<15m) water column profiles and sediment core incubations, we identified a benthic source of methane where the ETNP OMZ meets the continental shelf, .. [more]
