  • Numerical experiments with the INMCM4 climate model have shown that the observed 10% difference in the lower tropospheric methane concentration between the Arctic and the Southern Hemisphere can be reproduced in a climate model in which only the present-day spatial distribution of anthropogenic methane emissions and calculated emissions from wet ecosystems are considered. In model runs with an additional 50- or 100-Mt/year methane emission in the Arctic, the difference in atmospheric methane… CONTINUE READING
