Boudreau, B.P.; Luo, Y.; Meysman, F.J.R.; Middelburg, J;

Anthropogenic warming of the oceans can release methane (CH4) currently stored in sediments as gas hydrates. This CH4 will be oxidized to CO2, thus increasing the acidification of the oceans. We employ a biogeochemical model of the multimillennial carbon cycle to determ... View more
