Anthropogenic methane emissions are responsible for roughly one quarter of net radiative forcing from GHGs. Its short atmospheric lifetime makes its mitigation an impactful way to reduce the near-term rate of warming. Atmospheric observations can provide valuable information to (1) reduce uncertainty on magnitude of emissions (2) attribute emissions to specific sources and (3) identify mitigation opportunities.
This session solicits research that focuses on methane emissions from human activities (e.g., fossil fuel infrastructure, rice production, ruminants, landfills and waste sector). We encourage submissions that highlight how atmospheric observations -at different scales- better constrain the magnitude of different emission sources and provide information that can guide relevant stakeholders to reduce emissions.
