This chapter gives a general overview of the background and importance of bubble-releasing methane seeps and thus the relevance of this thesis. Furthermore the aim of this thesis, the geological setting of the three study areas, the used methods, the project framework as well as the outline of the thesis are briefly discussed. More detailed information about the items dealt with in the introduction is provided in the ‘introduction’, ‘study area’, ‘data and methods’ sections of the subsequent chapters. Whereas the introduction is intended as a brief overview more detailed background information is given and integrated with the results in the ‘final discussion’ chapter.
