Lakes Around Arctic Oceans are Leaking Dangerous Greenhouse Gases

Arctic ocean

In the latest discovery, Katey Walter Anthony has found a mucky shore which leaks dangerous greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Till now Katey has studied about 300 lakes that lie across the tundras of the Arctic.

This lake is said to be set against the austere peaks which lie around the Western Brooks Range, the lake whose size is about the 20 football fields in size and it looks like it is boiling. The water that are present in the lake makes hissing sound along with bubbled and popped which gives out a powerful greenhouse has escaped from the bed of the lake. Some of the bubbles that are present there are even growing as big as grapefruits which visibly lifting the water’s surface inches as they carry the bits of mud from the bed. The name of the gas that was escaping is methane.

It is seen that as permafrost thaws that lies across the fast warming Arctic, it now releases carbon dioxide, which is the top planet-warming greenhouse gas that is let out from the soil to the air. It has been seen that the thaws make the growth of the lakes in the soft, sunken sound along with the deep thawing bodies of water that tend to unleash the harder hitting methane gas.

The name of the lake which is said to be Walter Anthony dubbed Esieh Lake that looks different. The volume of the gas wafting from that as it could deliver the climate system which is another blow if the lakes turn out to be widespread.

As per Walter Anthony, it has seen Esieh Lake which she was said to be afraid of as it may get explode. In the year 2010, the University of Alaska at Fairbanks has posted a video of the media-savvy ecologist who is standing on the frozen surface of the Arctic lake. After that lighting the methane stream on fire to create a tower of flame which is as tall as she is. It has got near to half the million views on YouTube.

In the study of the lake, Measurements has shown that the lake will dips to about 50 feet deep in one area while in other it is about 15 feet deep. After that, the scientists have examined the samples of these gases, and they found methane is present in there which comes out from the lakes.
