NASA/GISS Surface-Atmosphere Exchange of Methane Data
Entry ID: GISS_SFC_ATMO_CH4


Summary
Abstract: [Source: NASA/GISS, http://data.giss.nasa.gov/ch4_fung/ ]

This page offers access to a number of datasets which describe the exchange of methane between Earth's surface and atmosphere. They have been used in simulations of atmospheric CH4 using the GISS three-dimensional tracer transport model. An overview of the datasets and the model runs is given in Fung et al. (1991) (see References below).
