Satellite Data Shows U.S. Methane ‘Hot Spot’ Bigger than Expected
One small “hot spot” in the U.S. Southwest is responsible for producing the largest concentration of the greenhouse gas methane seen over the United States – more than triple the standard ground-based estimate — according to a new study of satellite data by scientists at NASA and the University of Michigan.
Methane is very efficient at trapping heat in the atmosphere and, like carbon dioxide, it contributes to global warming. The hot spot, near the Four Corners intersection of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah, covers only about 2,500 square miles (6,500 square kilometers), or half the size of Connecticut.

Researchers created a new map of the seafloor at the bottom of some of the deepest parts of the ocean, revealing thousands of previously unknown seamounts. The findings could help researchers gain insight into how the continents were formed.
The scientists looked at two untapped streams of satellite data and combined it with existing information to create a highly detailed map, the National Science Foundation reported. The researchers also mapped out earthquakes, and found they were closely linked to seamounts, which were mostly volcanoes at some point in their lives.
