“We expected to see few sites, less than 1%, showing evidence of new methane,” said Tao Wen, a postdoctoral scholar in the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at Penn State. “We found 17 out of 20,751 samples, or about 0.08 %, that showed possible signs of methane contamination when those samples were collected.”
