Extension associate David Yoxtheimer uses a magnetometer to look for well casing at an unplugged abandoned gas well in northern Centre County. The bubbles, visible in the water, are methane. The field trip was part of Marcellus Matters Community Science Volunteer Program, an educational program supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation and run by the Marcellus Center for Outreach and Research in the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at Penn State. On this trip, students learned about water sampling and orphaned well forensics.
