Climate versus emission drivers of methane lifetime from 1860–2100

This is a valuable paper analyzing what controls the atmospheric lifetime of methane (CH4) from pre-industrial (1860) to present and into the future (2100, based on the RCP scenarios). Its strengths are a thorough analysis of the GFDL climate-chemistry simulations for the current IPCC/CMIP5 experiments – this is great because it is a consistent comparison in terms of model formulation and different diagnostics, but it is also a weakness because it applies to only one model. The strengths… CONTINUE READING
