Abstract Chief Scientist: Keith Kvenvolden. Geological data (navigation) of field activity M-1-94-AR in Beaufort Sea, Alaska from 01/01/1994 to 01/01/1994
National Plan global change
Chief Scientist Keith Kvenvolden
Activity Type Geological
Platform Annika Marie
Area of Operation Beaufort Sea, Alaska, Arctic Ocean
Bounding Coordinates
-157.75000    -138.25000

Keith Kvenvolden Chief Scientist, USGS Western Region
Equipment Used
Part of the continuing project to assess the content of methane in continental 
shelf waters of the Alaskan Beaufort Sea.  We are looking for evidence for 
methane release from destabilized gas hydrate.
Fifteen stations were occupied and 48 water samples were analyzed for methane. 
Our results hint at a methane anomaly at stations near the 20m isobath.
(from USGS Bulletin 9/2/94)  Keith Kvenvolden, Tom Lorenson, and Marv Lilley 
(University of Washington) returned from a week's cruise on the Annika Marie.
