A Process-based Analysis of Methane Exchanges Between Alaskan Terrestrial Ecosystems and the Atmosph

Methane is a greenhouse gas that is less abundant than carbon dioxide, but has a much more potent effect. It is also a greenhouse gas that is often present in natural systems. Zhuang et al. used computer modelling to predict trends in the absorption and release of methane in Alaskan soils, taking into account the effects that predicted climate change might have on methane cycling in ecosystems.
