  • Groundwater papers link methane in groundwater to natural sources

    A pair of papers in Groundwater®, NGWA's bimonthly technical publication, finds a high level of methane in water wells from two Texas counties is most likely from shallow natural gas deposits, not natural gas leaks caused by hydraulic fracturing operations in the underlying Barnett Shale.  The research builds on previous studies on well water quality in the Barnett Shale ...

  • Methane Levels in Air Lower Due to Leakage Control

    Despite an increase in methane-generating activities, such as drilling for fossil fuels, researchers have found that the amount of methane concentrations in the atmosphere have dropped over the past few decades, according to Climate Central. A team of atmospheric chemists have investigated and attribute this phenomenon to significantly diminished methane leakage from oil and gas wells. ...

  • NREL to help convert methane to liquid diesel

    The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will help develop microbes that convert methane found in natural gas into liquid diesel fuel, a novel approach that if successful could reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower dependence on foreign oil. The amount of natural gas simply flared or vented from oil wells globally is enormous – equal to ...

  • Dissolved Methane Found in Some New York Groundwater

    A recent study that looked at groundwater samples from more than 200 wells across New York State found levels of naturally-occurring methane high enough to warrant monitoring or other actions in nine percent of the water samples tested, according to U.S. Geological Survey research. While 91 percent of samples tested found no dissolved methane, or levels below the threshold that would require ...

  • NOAA and US Coast Guard hunt for Alaskan methane and carbon dioxide sources

    Recent observations have suggested that the air above Alaska may already hold the first signs of a regional increase in greenhouse gas emissions that could contribute to climate change around the globe. To learn more about the region’s emissions, NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo., has teamed up with the U.S. Coast Guard at Kodiak Island. The two partners are flying NOAA ...

  • Where Does it Go? New Method Evaluates Fate of Methane Released into Streams

    A new method for determining stream methane emissions at the watershed scale has been developed by scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey, University of Utah, North Carolina State University and Ohio State University. Methane has a global greenhouse gas warming potential of up to 28 – 36 times that of carbon dioxide, and can be ...

  • LI-COR Presents Landfill Methane Emission Data at Global Waste Management Symposium

    Measuring greenhouse gas emissions at landfills using continuous monitoring offers new insight in estimating total annual emissions. LI-COR Principal Scientist, Liukang Xu presented methane emission data collected from a landfill at Global Waste Management Symposium in Phoenix, AZ on October 1st, 2012 and discussed the advantages of continuous monitoring over traditional interval monitoring. In ...

  • Methane data are rolling in from the Russian Arctic, after bug battles and an overturned research lab

    In a remote part of the Russian Arctic, a land studded with thousands of lakes and a few towns, a thin electric cable connects a tiny research station and instrument tower with a power generator more than a mile away. The cable—made for indoor use—travels outdoors along juryrigged tripods made of branches. Moose will knock down anything, eventually, and the tripods are cheaper and easier to ...

  • USGS Finds Elevated Levels of Arsenic, Radon, Methane in Some Private Wells in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania

    Tests of 75 private drinking water wells in Lycoming County, in north-central Pennsylvania, found water from most of the sampled wells contained concentrations of radon that exceeded a proposed, nonbinding health standard for drinking water. Smaller percentages of the wells contained concentrations of arsenic or methane that exceed existing drinking water standards. The US Geological ...

  • Gas analyzers accelerate business growth

    Transportable multi-parameter analytical instruments have been key to the growth of an analytical services company based in Elk City, Oklahoma. Great Plains Analytical Services (GAS) operates a fleet of mobile monitoring systems, providing onsite gas analysis for customers across the USA, and Gasmet FTIR analyzers have enabled the company to offer a comprehensive onsite monitoring service. ...
