Methane Bubbles Research

An amazing natural phenomenon that I am intrigued by is Abraham Lake, Alberta, Canada. It is a lake, but it also a bomb, as beautiful as it is the lake can be dangerous. The little blue, mesmerizing bubbles of gas contain methane. When frozen they are mostly harmless, but come spring and summer those bubbles will loosen, get free and make their way to the surface. Once the ice breaks they pop open and fizz into the air and magically disappear. I am eager to go see this lake one day. The bubbles look as if they are jewels frozen under water. Methane bubbles form in water when dead organic matter falls into the water and sinks, as bacteria is waiting for them. Bacteria eat the matter and methane is developed, which turns to white floating bubbles
