Where Does it Go? New Method Evaluates Fate of Methane Released into Streams
A new method for determining stream methane emissions at thewatershedscale has been developed by scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey, University of Utah, North Carolina State University and Ohio State University. Methane has a global greenhouse gas warming potential of up to 28 – 36 times that of carbon dioxide, and can be discharged into streams either naturally or as a consequence of gas development. Methane emissions from rivers and streams have recently been recognized as an important component...
