"We've recognized for awhile that the deep ocean is a sink for methane, but primarily it has been thought that it was only in the sediment," said study researcher Jeffrey Marlow, a graduate student at Caltech. Methane and microbes Instead, it's full of microbes — bacteria and nucleus-free organisms called archaea — that eat the natural methane bubbling up from subsurface reservoirs.

Science News: Bronze Warrior Chariot Discovery Is 'Find of a Lifetime'

Bronze Warrior Chariot Discovery Is 'Find of a Lifetime'Digging near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, England, an archaeology team discovered a trove of bronze chariot fittings dating back to the second or third century B.C. The remains were discovered at the Burrough Hill Iron Age Hillfort, a fortified hilltop structure that was once surrounded by farms and settlements. Though humans lived in the area beginning around 4000 B.C., it was used most heavily between about 100 B.C. and A.D. 50, according to the University of Leicester. "This is the most remarkable discovery of material we made at Burrough Hill in the five years we worked on the site," University of Leicester archaeologist Jeremy Taylor said in a statement. It was four of these archaeology students who first found a piece of bronze near an Iron Age house within the Burrough Hill fort.

Science News: New Tech Helps Pilots Navigate Dangerous Volcanic Ash Plumes

New Tech Helps Pilots Navigate Dangerous Volcanic Ash PlumesNew technology to detect volcanic ash that threatens airplanes could help prevent a repeat of the air traffic chaos that followed a 2010 volcanic eruption in Iceland. With satellites, scientists can detect tiny ash particles, but predicting where aircraft can safely fly is still a major hurdle. "The key issue for us is to develop an integrated monitoring and response system for future volcanic crises that can be used to respond quickly in the event of the formation of an ash cloud from Iceland," Hans Schlager, head of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the German Aerospace Center, said in a statement. Ash particles are jagged and sharp.
