Large amounts of methane are erupting from the seafloor of the Arctic Ocean. These methane eruptions are often missed by measuring stations, because these stations are located on land, while measurements are typically taken at low altitude, thus missing the methane that rises in plumes from the Arctic Ocean. By the time the methane reaches the coast, it has typically risen to higher altitudes, thus not showing up in low-altitude measurements taken at stations on land.

If someone could capture that, it would lower greenhouse gas load, because CO2 is much less potent that methane.

And it could be very profitable if there were some way to condense and sell it. I know it seems unlikely, but less likely things have happened.
