Methane Explosions with Nuclear Force Lie In Wait Off the West Coast

The list of dangers related to the Cascadian Subduction Zone continues to grow my grim with each passing day. This article deals with the methane danger facing the West Coast. The effects for Cascadia are not made readily available. and I am certain this oversight is intentional for financial reasons (eg insurance and property values would be threatened). To gain a fuller understanding that methane accumulation off the West Coast poses, we will have to look at the aftermatch of the Gulf Oil Spill.

Large and Numerous Deposits of Methane Found Off of the Northwest Coast

There is a study in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth which indicates that methane vaults were found on the Washington margin in 2009 and since that time, the number has grown exponentially. The original discovery was make about 30 miles from the coastline. The methane bubles are gejerated. The study revealed why the bubble plumes, all 1700 in the original discovery, appeared where they did. The appearance of the methane suggests that the cause is due to underlying geological activity. The methane emergence is due to fluid rise through the faults generated by the moving plates as one plate is moving under the Cascadia plate. Methane explosions are expected to become a major problem both at sea and on land.
