The distribution of methane in several anoxic marine environments is described. Maximum concentrations observed were μ mole CH4-C/liter. The distribution of methane seems to follow that of sulfide. The data indicate that methane is derived from organic compounds not containing nitrogen or phosphorus and that its formation is much slower than that of sulfide.
