Abstract: [Source: NASA/GISS, ]

Surface Exchange of Methane (Fung et al. 1991)

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 ... View entire text
