Explosive Methane Burst and Bubble Streams

During the recent GISR expedition, the team encountered a massive burst of methane from the Sleeping Dragon seep they were observing. The explosive burst was strong enough to eject rocks up on to the front deck of the ROV Hercules, some of which made it all the way back up to the surface when we recovered the vehicles.
