New Preprint Online

A preprint of my article, “Subterranean karst environments as a global sink for atmospheric methane” is now online. My team and I present research on 36 caves from across the world and show that the methane concentration of cave air is depleted compared to the atmosphere. Our work demonstrates that atmospheric methane is consumed by methanotrophic bacteria living in caves. Additionally, our work shows that the methanogenic processes of carbonate reduction and acetate fermentation are widespread in the environment. The article can be found here https://www.preprints.org/manuscript/201708.0009/v1
