Bacterial decomposition of methane by some soil samples from the Jharia coalfield area has been studied. Although no experiment with pure culture of methanomonous bacteria has been made, the studies indicate significant bacterial activity of the methanomonous methanica species in the soil in and around the Jharia coalfield area of Dhanbad. They also indicate that presence of other active protozoa of amebae type probably might have had decelerating effect on expected more pronounced activity. A properly computed oxygen concentration may be used as index in studying the activity in certain ranges.
