Bacterial action in the anaerobic sediments of Spartina salt marsh produce large quantities of methane. Water in contact with the marsh has methane concentrations 200-300 times normal oceanic concentrations. The methane content of the water varies from maximum of 1.2 mu l CH sub(4)/ super(l) super(-1) in the summer to a minimum of 0.005 mu l CHl1
