      Distribution of dissolved methane across the Barnett Shale play. Each small red dot represents a Barnett Shale gas well. The other colored dots represent groundwater sample map. Soil gases are the gases found in the air space between soil components. The primary soil gases include nitrogen, carbon dioxide and oxygen. The oxygen is critical because it allows for respiration of both plant roots and soil organisms. Other natural soil gases are atmospheric methane and environmental contaminants below ground produce gas which diffuses through the soil Applications: Soil conservation, Soil management, .   A new study by scientists at Duke University and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) finds no evidence of groundwater contamination from shale gas production in Arkansas.

A total of shallow (2- to 4-ft depth) soil-gas and ground-water samples were collected from soil and 15 ground-water sites (figs. 3 and 4). Sum- mary statistics of methane concentrations for five areas of coal-bed production (fig.

The geochemical aspect of the project, relying on isotopes of various compounds from shallow groundwater and rock samples, will help establish baseline gas concentrations in the aquifer, evaluating whether gas concentrations and isotopic ratios vary over time, and identifying the source(s) of methane.

"Large resources of dissolved methane are usually present wherever thick sequences of sandstone or other porous rocks are saturated with ground.

Another 13 wells had methane concentrations ranging from to mg/L, 32 wells had concentrations ranging from to mg/L, and 73 wells had detectable methane concentrations less than mg/L.

This document is unique in that it emphasizes conceptual models for vapor transport, describes how to choose sample locations and depths, explains how to check the data for inconsistencies.

For the higher flow rates of 12 L/min and 24 L/min, the methane concentrations were measured for a specified period.

The solenoid valve was then closed after the release phase and the gas in the soil dissipated to a near-zero methane condition.
