Data on the biogeochemical cycle of methane in the ocean, supplement to: Lein, Alla Yu; Ivanov, Mikhail V (2009): Biogeokhimicheskii Tsikl Metana v Okeane (Biogeochemical Cycle of Methane in the Ocean). Nauka Publ. (Moscow); Lisitzin, A.P. (Ed.), 576 pp.


Geological, mineralogical and microbiological aspects of the methane cycle in water and sediments of different areas in the oceans are under consideration in the monograph. Original and published estimations of formation- and oxidation rates of methane with use of radioisotope and isotopic methods are given. The role of aerobic and anaerobic microbial oxidation of methane in production of organic matter and in formation of authigenic carbonates is considered. Particular attention is paid to processes of methane transformation in areas of its intensive input to the water column from deep-sea hydrothermal sources, mud volcanoes, and cold methane seeps.
