I wonder if it means that methane could be entering from the north on a systematic basis. E.g., higher rainfall rates near the pole. -Of course, this is reading a lot into a little data.


Well, this is exactly the paradigm I suggested (based on even less data!) in my 2014 'Flushing of Ligeia' paper https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi...02/2014GL061133

The analogies I draw is with the Sea of Azov - Black Sea - Mediterranean gradient, with Azov much less salty than the Med. There's some backwash back and forth, causing mixing, but a net flow of freshwater from continental rainfall. Same story with the Baltic Sea and Atlantic.
