  • Ocean Absorption of Carbon Dioxide More than Makes Up for Methane Emissions from Seafloor Methane Seeps

    The ocean waters near the surface of the Arctic Ocean absorbed 2,000 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than the amount of methane that escaped into the atmosphere from the same waters, according to a study by the USGS Gas Hydrates Project and collaborators in Germany and Norway. The study was conducted near Norway’s Svalbard Islands, above several  ...

  • Jubilee bonfire beacon, but no explosion, thanks to methane leak check

    Villagers in Brightwell Baldwin in Oxfordshire celebrated the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in style, lighting a hilltop bonfire as one of the nationwide chain of 4000 beacons being lit simultaneously.

  • 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 ...

  • Despite methane emissions upstream, natural gas is cleaner than coal on a life-cycle basis

    Over its full cycle of production, distribution, and use, natural gas emits just over half as many greenhouse gas emissions as coal does for equivalent energy output, according to a new study from the Worldwatch Institute and the Deutsche Bank Climate Change Advisors. The analysis clarifies the role of methane releases in the calculation of comparative emissions between the two fossil fuels and ...

  • Bump testing doesn’t have to be a headache

    There are many reasons why a portable gas detector may not to react to gas, some of which may not be evident to the user. The safest way to make sure a gas monitor is working at its optimum is to regularly test the unit. This is known as a gas or ‘bump’ test. The following scenario highlights the importance of bump testing: Peter works at a local oil refinery and arrives on site in ...
