Carbon export in boreal catchments depends on the landscape setting and differs for snowmelt and rainfall events.
Global methane budgets suffer from a lack of field studies in African forests, but new research sheds light on methane emissions and uptake from upland forests in the Congo Basin.
A curious breath-like pattern exhibited by gas hydrates may help forecast hazards associated with extracting them from the seafloor.
Using new methods, researchers can estimate how much methane is released each day from reservoirs—an important step in estimating global methane emissions.
An innovative integration of models and satellite observations indicates weak temperature sensitivity of CH4 emissions from tropical wetlands, but temperature sensitivity is high at higher latitudes.
Progress has been made to reduce methane emission intensity from livestock (the amount of methane per unit of protein), but where are the greatest opportunities to reduce this methane source further?
Fresh waters are one of the primary sources of natural methane emissions, but methane dynamics in tropical lakes are not as well understood as those in more temperate regions.
Scientists have found a methane reservoir below the permafrost seabed of the Laptev Sea—a reservoir that could suddenly release large amounts of the potent greenhouse gas.
Increased seawater exposure from flooding and storms is altering how coastal forests cycle methane, leading to more greenhouse gas accumulation in tree stems and soil.
Biden’s executive order calling for consideration of new methane regulations comes on the heels of a new global analysis of the fuel’s impact on climate change.
