Latest Atmospheric methane Stories
A NASA aircraft carrying the Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) is finishing up a month-long mission to address a broad range of scientific questions over the Americas, including the dynamics of the Earth’s crust, glaciers and the carbon cycle.
The European Space Agency's SMOS satellite is showing its worth in observing the wetlands, offering a better understanding of Earth's carbon cycle.
Researchers taking measurements of the gas at ground level in these regions have noticed a significant drop in methane gas levels compared to what they found in the air around tropical areas.
A new study led by the University of California, Davis finds that more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, coupled with rising temperatures, is making rice agriculture a larger source of the potent greenhouse gas methane.
Analysis of the Greenland ice sheet is allowing scientists to trace the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane back thousands of years.
A recent study of the Antarctic Ice Sheet suggests that it could be a largely overlooked source of the potent greenhouse gas methane.
Commercial natural gas was likely major factor in late-20th century stabilization
A new study from the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies asserts that diseased trees may be a significant new source of methane gas that causes climate change.
The edges of glaciers and Arctic permafrost are where most of the evidence of global warming can be seen, but scientists have recently been traveling to these remote locations for a different reason.
