When the water freezes in winter, then the decaying plants on the lake bed release methane gas that forms frozen bubbles and become trapped under the lake's surface. The whole phenomenon produces a magical landscape. But these dazzling methane bubbles also harbour problems for the environment and can cause global warming. NASA Finds Novel Ways To Track Climate Change and Groundwater Loss Across Planet.

Methane bubbles form when water dwelling bacteria feed on decaying matter, expel methane, which rises and freezes
Water freezes from the top down,
bubbles rise from sediments, hit the bottom of downward-growing ice, and freeze into linear stacks 1/🧵pic.twitter.com/aWhNzKcVJ5
