New study sheds light on how much methane is produced from Arctic lakes and wetlands

Spread the word
New study looked at lakes in the Arctic, including those at Alaska’s Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge, to shed light on how much methane is produced from Arctic lakes and wetlands. Small unmapped lakes in the Arctic are far less abundant than previously thought, greatly reducing the cumulative methane emissions they were thought to contribute to Earth’s atmosphere.
