SOILS currently consume about 30–40 Tg methane per year1,2, which is comparable to the net annual increase in atmospheric methane concentration from 1980 to 19903. Most soils consume methane2,4–9, but the extent varies with soil water content, land use and ammonium inputs5,10–13. Ammonium concentrations in many soils have increased in recent years as a result of land-use changes and increases in ammonium concentration in precipitation14,15. Ammonium strongly inhibits soil methane consumption… CONTINUE READING
