MAMM – Methane and other Greenhouse Gases in the Arctic: Measurements, Process Studies and Modelling. (NERC)

The Arctic is an important source of various greenhouse gases, and particularly methane. This is a short-lived gas which remains in the atmosphere for just nine years, meaning that a reduction in emissions could produce a measurable reduction in atmospheric greenhouse gases very quickly.

MAMM therefore aims to quantify the anthropogenic and natural sources of greenhouse gases – particularly methane – in the Arctic, using data from satellites as well as observations made on the ground and from ships and aircraft.

More information about MAMM can be found at: http://arp.arctic.ac.uk/projects/methane-and-other-greenhouse-gases-arctic-measurem/
