Spatial variability of methane abundance in a British Columbian fjord system
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigated Effingham Inlet, Vancouver Island, in an attempt to determine the distribution of methane in a complex, three-basin fjord system. Methane concentrations were highest at the bottom of the inner basin, but were also high deep in the middle basin. Concentrations were much smaller in the outer basin, and near the surface. These results suggest that these basins have not been completely flushed recently.
