Understanding the biogenic sources and sinks of methane (CH4) is critical to both predicting and mitigating future climate change. Methane is 28-34 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere compared to an equivalent mass of carbon dioxide over a 100-year time frame and accounts for about 42 percent of warming since the pre-industrial period.
