Taking Methane Production Into Account

Climate-driven shifts in sediment chemistry enhance methane production in northern lakes SUMMARY: Different types of plant material decay and produce different amounts of methane. Methane is a more potent greenhouse gas compared to CO2 and decomposes into CO2 in the atmosphere. This study compared methane production of various types of plants. Plant material was collected… Continue reading Taking Methane Production Into Account
