Editor’s Note: The article about which this Research Spotlight was written has been retracted by the authors because of an error in wind measurements used to calculate methane emissions in the southwestern Marcellus Shale region. The authors are planning to submit a new manuscript to Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres with an updated analysis.
