QPS clients discover hundreds of methane plumes off US Atlantic margin, publish in Nature Geoscience

Several QPS clients co-authored a paper that was just published online by Nature Geoscience, titled "Widespread methane leakage from the sea floor on the northern US Atlantic margin." Adam Skarke of Mississippi State University and his co-authors are getting great coverage for their publication, including the BBC (" 'Widespread methane leakage' from ocean floor off US coast," 24 August 2014) , The New York Times ("Methane Is Discovered Seeping From Seafloor Off East Coast, Scientists Say," 24 August 2014), and NBC News ("Climate Bomb? Methane Vents Bubble on Seafloor off East Coast: Study," 24 August 2014).

The QPS Fledermaus FMMidwater module was used to process and visualize the Kongsberg Simrad EM302 multibeam sonar watercolumn backscatter data (collected by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Office of Ocean Exploration and Research) for examination and seep identification; the Fledermaus package was used to create several of the images in the publication and related press (that's an FMMidwater image your seeing in the BBC article!).  QPS provided additional licenses to the team to help support this work.  For more information of the Fledermaus suite, visit our Sales page.  You can request a 30 day evaluation of Fledermaus, including the FMMidwater module, here.
