At the Biogeosciences division we are highlighting BG led sessions in the run up to the 2022 General Assembly. New for 2022 we are pleased to introduce BG7.1 “Sources and sinks of methane in the aquatic realm” convened by Helge Niemann, Alina Stadnitskaia and Tina Treude. This session will be held online and in Room 2.95 on Wednesday 25th May (15:55–18:28 (CEST)).
This session features 20 presentations, 75% of which are led by early career scientists, covering:
- Methane in marine/lacustrine sediments
- Isotope signatures of aquatic methane
- Methane detection
- New ways of methane formation
- Sea/lake-atmosphere methane fluxes
- Methane cycling in ‘exotic’ environments
Highlighted presentations in the session include solicited talks from: Hanni Vigderovich et al., discussing “Aerobic methanotrophic activity stimulates iron reduction in lake sediments” and Frank Keppler et al., presenting “Methane formation across living organisms driven by ROS: new perspectives for understanding of biochemical methane formation and cycling on Earth”.
One of the most exciting aspects of BG7.1 is the diversity of regions represented in this session. Our ECS led talks range from the Greenland Ice Sheet with a presentation from Hatton et al., to the western Tropical North Atlantic with Jan von Arx et al., and many more!
