The Arctic Methane Enigma from an Isotope Perspective


Methane (CH4) is one of the most important greenhouse gas. Its atmospheric concentration largelyincreased since preindustrial times, due to human activity.However, natural sources (e.g. wetlands, termites,..) represent one third of the CH4 sources. The Arctic CH4 sources are boreal wetlands, thawing permafrosts and theArctic Ocean.

It is presumed that in a warmer climate, the Arctic CH4 sources might increase, but quantifying the future emissions remains difficult without understanding the underlying processes leading to CH4 formation.

Analyzing in situ CH4 concentrations and isotope ratios is an excellent tool to understand the processesleading to CH4 emissions from different type of sources.

Master Project Opportunity
We are seeking a highly motivated & flexible Master student interested in laboratory work with a good background in geosciences or/and chemistry or/and biology.

Duration: 4-8 months.
Location: IMAU, Utrecht University, the Netherlands
Goal: Measuring CH4 isotopes and concentrations on air and ice samples from the Arctic regions.
Contacts: Drs. Celia Sapart, C.J.Sapart@uu.nl or Prof. Thomas Roeckmann, T.Roeckmann@uu.nl
