running title

  • Methane in Land-Based Low T Serpentinization Sites

description

  • Assessment of abiotic methane production temperature in continental serpentinization systems based on CH4 isotopologue geothermometry and geologic data. Natural gas samples from selected sites in Europe are collected and shipped to partner laboratories forclumped-isotope analyses. An additional set of methane samples is collected from high temperature geothermal systems for comparison.
