Abstract
Methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) are important greenhouse gases. Their global warming potentials are about 20 times and 300 times larger than CO2 on a 100-year horizon, respectively. The ocean plays a minor or substantial role in emissions of CH4 and N2O to the atmosphere. Since these gases are produced by microbial activities under anoxic or suboxic conditions in particulate matters or upwelling region, the costal region has been assumed to be a spot to contribute large emissions of these gases. However, their source strengths reveal large variability depending on the place and the time the measurements were conducted. To draw reliable emission strengths of CH4 and N2O in the coastal region, it is necessary to frequently measure them in large areas of the coast. A few measurements of CH4 in water column around Korean peninsula have been reported while dissolved N2O has never been observed. Here we present dissolved CH4 and N2O concentrations measured along the east and southeast coast of Korean peninsula in July, 2009. The campaign was carried out on board R/V Ieodo and the dissolved gases were analyzed in situ. Water samples collected by Niskin bottles were sub-sampled in a specially-designed glass container. Using ahead-space equilibrium technique dissolved gases were extracted and analyzed in a gas chromatographic system. Dissolved CH4 and N2O increased with depth in the most water columns while in several stations maxima were observed above the deepest water. We will discuss the observations in the presentation.
