melting permafrost Russian ground up more than seven thousand

according to The Times of Siberia, in recent years, is located in the north-west Siberia yamal and up to the surface of the peninsula are up more than seven thousand" underground gas pit ".Experts say that this may be due to local after thawing permafrost due to produce large amounts of methane gas.The more than seven thousand "crater" may are in danger of explosion, the russians are for air monitoring, scientists have also stepped up their research.The picture shows on the ground uplift "crater".(reprint please indicate the source, more splendid content from the penguin "sweet and sour international".)

these" crater "in the earth's surface, like a small hill.Experts say that after the explosion forming a crater in the shape of a puddle."At first the bulge will drum up on the ground, and then beat release gases after the explosion, which formed a huge puddle."Alec west - is tibor scitovsky teeter yamal, director of the local scientific innovation, he explained.The graph is formed after the "crater" bang big puddle.

Alec west said:" we need to study what bulge is dangerous, which is safe."At present, the local Russian scientists are testing may exist on the earth's surface and explosion danger, such as when a bulge bump height to what extent, it can withstand the pressure and explosion.Alec west, said the work is likely to last throughout the year.

the earliest a" gas "the pit was found in the summer of 2016.Then the yamal region is very hot, the highest temperature reached 35 degrees Celsius in air.A team of staff in and found a "gas" the pit uplift, tried to remove it on the surface of the grass and soil, think that the "crater" exploded.

from science park ural branch of Russian scientists said, thawing of permafrost is one of the reasons for the" gas hole formation, and permafrost thawing is from the past few decades due to temperature rising in northern Eurasia.

experts after analysis found that the underground" crater "in the greenhouse gas content and the atmosphere was much higher than average, for example, which is 1000 times more than the average content of methane gas, carbon dioxide content of more than 25 times the average.The graph is "crater" after the blast hole in the earth's surface.

taymyr peninsula is the most northern tip of the peninsula, the Asian continent it also appeared on the surface of many" crater ", recently several "crater" broke out there, and formed the crater in the shape of a hole.Nearby residents said they see the sky hair light, 100 kilometers away from "crater" also heard the explosion.

the more than seven thousand" gas "the pit is mostly distributed in Russia the yamal, peninsula and taymyr peninsula.They are key Russian energy origin, scientists are mapping the distribution of these "crater", they say "crater" uplift may damage the local energy transport facilities.The researchers at work.
