Soil gas methane and combustible gas concentrations collected from oil and gas well pad locations in Utah. Soil gas samples were measured on site and/or collected for later analysis as described in supporting documentation. Multiple sample locations around well head and depths within the soil profile are available for select sites. Supporting documents provide information of sample collection protocol and data quality assurance.

With recent concern over climate change, methods for decreasing atmospheric levels of greenhouse gasses such as CO<sub>2</sub> have been of particular interest, including carbon sequestration in soils that have depreciated levels of carbon from cultivated agricultural crop production. The Delmarva Peninsula contains many Delmarva Bay landforms, which commonly contain wetlands. Five pairs of Delmarva Bays were selected to examine change in carbon stocks following conversion to agriculture and to assess the potential for carbon sequestration if these soils were to be restored hydrologically and vegetatively. A loss of approximately 50 % of the stored soil carbon was observed following the conversion to agriculture....
