Newswise: Origin of Massive Methane Reservoir Identified

Article ID: 717753

Origin of Massive Methane Reservoir Identified

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

New research from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) published Aug. 19, 2019, in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science provides evidence of the formation and abundance of abiotic methane—methane formed by chemical reactions that don’t involve organic matter—on Earth and shows how the gases could have a similar origin on other planets and moons, even those no longer home to liquid water. Researchers had long noticed methane released from deep-sea vents. But while the gas is plentiful in the atmosphere where it’s produced by living things, the source of methane at the seafloor was a mystery.

Folded Paper Creates Portable Lab for Field Laboratory Tests

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Monitoring and tracking biological threats or epidemics require the ability to carry out tests in the field during austere situations. Expensive laboratory equipment is often unavailable in these settings, so inexpensive point-of-care technology is needed. Ordinary paper is often used, since it’s cheap, portable and widely available. However, paper poses some problems that hinder its usefulness. In this week’s Biointerphases, investigators report a technique that greatly improves the performance of paper-based point-of-care technologies.
