Hydrocarbon Gases In Some Volcanic And Geothermal Systems

The Analysis Of Hydrocarbon Gases In Volcanic And Geothermal Systems Has Traditionally Been Limited To Methane And Occasionally Ethane. Stoiber, Et Al. (1971) Analyzed Three Gas Samples From A Fumarole On Santiaquitio Volcano, Guatemala And Identified A Wide Range Of Organic Compounds Including Aliphatic And Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Aldehydes, Ketones, Alcohols, Halogenated Hydrocarbons, And Sulfur Compounds. Gunter (1978) Analyzed Several Samples From Yellowstone National Park For The C-L To C-4 Hydrocarbons. The Normal Alkanes, Isobutane, Ethene, And Propene Were Identified. The Present Work Reports On The Analysis Of C-L To C-6 Hydrocarbons, Including Normal And Branched Alkanes, Alkenes, And Cyclic Compounds, From A Variety Of Volcanic And Geothermal Systems.
