Nature Climate Change: Recent intensification of wetland methane feedback

作者:Zhen Zhang , Benjamin Poulter, Andrew F. Feldman等 

The positive response of wetland methane (CH4) emissions to climate change is an important yet uncertain Earth-system feedback that amplifies atmospheric CH4 concentrations. Here, using a wetland model, we report intensified wetland CH4 emissions during 2000–2021, corresponding with 2020 and 2021 being exceptional years of growth. Our results highlight the need for sustained monitoring and observations of global wetland CH4 fluxes to document emerging trends, variability and underlying drivers. (来源: Nature Climate Change 2023.
