Recently, as per the study by NASA, new lakes are emerging in Alaska due to thawing permafrost and releasing methane, a greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.
High concentrations of atmospheric methane have been measured at individual Arctic sites, especially in Siberia. This adds to the concern that massive methane releases are already occurring in the far North.
NASA's multiyear Carbon in Arctic Reservoirs Vulnerability Experiment (CARVE) is the first experiment to establish emission rates for a large region of the Arctic.
Lakes as a source of Methane
How the lakes are responsible for emitting Methane?
Why Methane emission is a cause of concern?
Verifying, please be patient.
