      <br><br>Goldfinger et al., 1999, report; "Because methane is
      susceptible to oxidation through both microbial and inorganic
      reactions along its flow path, determining the fate of
      mobilized methane is critical for evaluating the role of
      gas hydrate in earth history and in global change."
      Sloan et al 1999: "Bacterial oxidation of the methane
      produces a bicarbonate anion, which binds with the calcium
      present in seawater to produce the carbonate. <br><br>. .
      . <br><br>In Cascadia, much of the loss of methane
      from the water column is due to oxidation rather than
      mixing (Whitcar, 1999). Evidently, living organisms
      oxide methane very quickly, as confirmed by de Angelis
      et al 1999, who state: "Clam and snail shells
      exhibited specific oxidation rates equivalent to the
      removal of 24 to 110 % available methane per square cm
      per day. Bacterial mats sampled from carbonate rock
      surfaces were observed to be capable of removing 16 to 86
      % of ambient methane per square cm of surface per
      day"

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
