Atmospheric Methane: Sources, Sinks, and Role in Global Change

Methane performs many very important roles within the earth's surroundings. it's a powerful "greenhouse fuel" that warms the earth; controls the oxidizing ability of the ambience (OH) in some way affecting the cycles and abundances of many atmospheric hint gases; offers water vapor to the stratosphere; scavenges chlorine atoms from the stratosphere, terminating the catalytic ozone destruction via chlorine atoms, together with the chlorine published from the man-made chlorofluorocarbons; produces ozone, CO, and CO2 within the troposphere; and it's an index of lifestyles on the earth and so is found in larger amounts in the course of hot interglacial epochs and dwindles to low degrees through the chilly of ice a long time.
