A methane-capture landscape in remote northern Alaska. The methane-capturing landscape system composed of layers of pipes, interacts with gases being released from the soil and through the snow. As gases are captured, the heat is released by the nest of pipes. A heat-dissipation object sits atop the snow to slow processes of heat-release into the atmosphere. The typology of the system changes depending on snowcover and terrain (flat vs sloped).
