Anaerobic Methane Oxidation In The Deep Sub-Seafloor Microbial Biosphere

Grant number: DP110103668 | Funding period: 2011 - 2014

Completed

Abstract

Microbes that control the emission of the greenhouse gas methane from the seafloor to the Earth's atmosphere effectively slow global warming. This project aims to understand the microbial controls for this process to improve an understanding of this planet's natural carbon cycle, and yield valuable information for marine CO2 geosequestration strategies.
