Tittel

Advancing Knowledge on Methane in the Arctic (AKMA): Norway-USA Collaboration

Populærvitenskapelig sammendrag

INTPART-AKMA is a collaborative project including scientists from UiT - the Arctic university of Norway in Tromsø and WHOI in USA. Our aim is to advance collective knowledge about methane activity in the seabed, on the seafloor and in the ocean in Arctic regions. The Arctic regions are particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate changes, and methane is a highly effective climate changing gas when it reaches the atmosphere.

Students will have the opportunity to attend ship-based expeditions, attend courses and partake in exchanges with AKMA

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The Arctic is particularly vulnerable to rising temperatures in ocean and atmosphere. Methane hydrate stability may impact many of the interconnected processes - biological, chemical, geological - in the Arctic ocean.

Methane Hydrates are crystalline compounds which are found in marine and permafrost regions world-wide. Hydrate is generally stable in the subsurface under specific temperature and pressure regimes, however as the arctic ocean warms, gas hydrate destabilization can occur. Destabilization of gas hydrate leads to methane release onto the seabed and into the water column. There are microbes which live in the seabed and in the water column that can consume methane, however if methane reaches the atmosphere it acts to warm as a potent greenhouse gas, keeping warmth trapped in the atmosphere and contributing to a warming climate.

It is crucial that we understand how methane affects coupled biological, chemical and geologic processes, especially in the Arctic Ocean.

AKMA supports students to undergo the training and gain knowledge to become the future Arctic Oceanographic experts

Metode

MAKMA project participants are passionate about sharing our science with everyone. Over the course of the project, we aim to compile a comprehensive database of informative videos, blog posts and relevant materials to understanding how methane gas impacts the Arctic. We will also share live streams of some of the sampling procedures and life aboard a research vessel during our expeditions into the Arctic. Find all our resources and keep up to date with the project here.

Our science resources cover a range of disciplines, from geophysics to oceanography. We aim to cater material to a range of audiences - please contact us for outreach opportunities or to discuss accessibility
