Plumes of Methane Leaking From Ocean

Methane can come from all kinds of places. But now a team of researchers has discovered over 500 bubbling methane vents just off the east coast of the U.S. that are releasing the gas, too. The team of scientists has been studying the continental margin—part of the ocean floor that divides the coast and the deep ocean. They've discovered a series of at least 570 methane seeps on the Atlantic floor, in an area between North Carolina and Massachusetts. #tech
