Accounting for methane

Submission status

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and a strong driver of climate change. Sources of emissions include both human activity, such as natural gas leakage and rearing livestock, and natural environments, such as wetlands. This Collection of articles from Communications Earth & Environment explores the processes that influence methane emissions across a range of settings in the natural environment and how we can improve methane accounting associated with human activities to, ultimately, mitigate anthropogenic emissions.

This is an open Collection and submissions will be considered on a rolling basis.
