Methane on the Rise—Again

In Science, InGOS scientist Euan Nisbet and co-authors published a perspective on the developments in the global methan concentrations, that appear to rise sharply again, after stagnation in the last 20 years.

Main conclusion is that both natural  and antropogenic emissions have increased since 2007, with rising emissions mainly originating from the tropics (9-14 Tg/year) and the northern mid-latitudes (6-8 Tg/year).
