International Training School - Bubbles 2017

Bubbles 2017 School, June 6-16, Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE), Department of Geosciences, UiT – Norges Arktiske Universitet, Tromsø, Norway

The main aim of Bubbles 2017 International Training School is to provide a thorough and interdisciplinary introduction to the role of methane in marine and terrestrial environments (e.g. permafrost), from generation, migration, consumption and impact on the seafloor, water column and finally into the atmosphere. The school will also give an overview of the state-of-art techniques and methods for detecting and monitoring methane emissions. Lastly, we will cover the planet’s methane inventory and the impact of methane on the climate.
