The uncertainty in the methane (CH4) source strength of rice fields is among the highest of all sources in the global CH4 budget. Methods to estimate the source strength of rice fields can be divided into two scaling categories: bottom-up (upscaling) and top-down (downscaling). A brief review of upscaling and downscaling methodologies is presented. The… CONTINUE READING
